LinkedIn profile tips

By November 22nd, 2016No Comments

Here are some LinkedIn Profile tips.  You don’t get a second chance to create a good first impression – so it is important to have a professional, current Profile.

► Your Profile = your advertisement on LinkedIn.
► Is the information within your Profile up-to-date?
► Does your photograph show you smiling and facing the camera?
► Is your photograph in colour, does it fit the available space properly?
► The line of text underneath your name is your strapline. It shows up all over LinkedIn. Are you happy with it?
► Create a company page and ensure that it appears to the right of ‘Current’ (to the right of your photo).
► Ensure that your Contact Info section is filled in, including a business email address and phone number.
► Is it clear what you actually do?
► Your Summary section should be written in the first person. It should focus on what you deliver (not just what you do).
► If you want more Endorsements and Recommendations, give more Endorsements and Recommendations.
► Have you proof-read everything?
