Hello. I do have online profile in various job seeking site like LinkedIn, Indeed and Job Street. I think it is not easy to get a job from job site as a fresher. It is important to reflect all of your career path.

Yes I have online profile on saramin site about jobseeking. In my point of view, to attract manager's sight, We have to write contents briefly but those can represent critical point. Practice make you perfect! Also Before writing, you investigated company information like ideal employee, attitude, aim, history and others. By doing this, you can identify whether the company is fit for you or not.

I do have online profiles on various websites, such as Linkedin or Indeed. In my opinion, as a current job seeker who is not a native speaker in English, using action verbs are quite important when you make an online profile. You may refer the website themuse.com for advice on "Powerful verbs that will make your resume awesome", which I use when I make my profile.
