Add Value To Your LinkedIn Profile
Like most people, I gradually allowed myself to dismiss LinkedIn and undervalue that free and beneficial resource. Following a nearly two-year absence, I was happy to log into and discover new profile enhancements that showcase ambitious professionals and emphasize our expertise in ways that make us seem very capable to potential clients and companies. It is time to take another look at LinkedIn.
LINKS. My favorite new feature is that the site link that all expert experience listings currently offer. Click here; copy/paste the business web address to the dialog box; see the nice picture that pops in the visuals box; click continue, Proteus Leadership then click to profile and presto! Your profile will feature eye-catching images that entice interested parties to research your affiliated associations as well as the experience that you’ll contribute.You may also link a photo, document, presentation, or even a movie and provide good insight into the business and your role there.
SPOTLIGHT. Above your profile photo and headline job listing, notice the ticker tape of skills spotlight choices which you may click , fill in and include even more information to showcase your experience, professional pursuits and achievements. I saw questions that pertained to classes and activities I participated in at college; posts I might have recently published; and work samples or unique projects that I might add to my profile.
GROUPS. The awards’ organizers invited me to combine the LinkedIn group that’s exclusive to judges. I periodically follow talks to discover what I can learn and contribute. I suggest that you research LinkedIn classes, starting with your college alumni group, which can be a great resource professionally and personally.
