At this point we all use LinkedIn or at the very least know it as the Professional version of Facebook, right? Well, LinkedIn is constantly evolving and is now a sophisticated platform for professionals. Whether you are looking for your next career move, new business connections or just want to keep up with the latest information for your industry, LinkedIn is the place to be. However, like many things, a poor profile on LinkedIn can be worse than no profile at all. Follow these quick steps to make your profile stand-out and ultimately accomplish your goals with help from the 414 Million people on LinkedIn (and growing daily).
Before you follow any of these steps, do one important thing: Change your settings so your updates are not pushed out to everyone in your LinkedIn network. Not only are these notifications annoying to your colleagues, you also don’t want to showcase first drafts of various updates without the final polish. You can edit this setting on the editing profile screen, then click the “No” toggle button on the right hand side of your profile in the section that says “Notify Your Network?”.
Now for the fun stuff, sign into LinkedIn and let’s get updating:
Have fun updating!
