Whether you are employed by an organization or you are an entrepreneur, you should be on Linkedin. It is the social media network for professionals who are looking to network, connect with their peers, co-workers, or other business partners.
A big tip I have for Linkedin, may seem obvious, but it’s something many people miss. When you go on your profile, there may be a lot of fields to fill out, but take the time to fill them out. ALL of them. Just to help, Linkedin includes a progress circle letting you know if you have completely filled out your profile. If it’s not full, it will show you what is missing.
One of the biggest mistakes you can make is to rush through and simply copy/paste your resume into a Linkedin profile. You need to show that you are a serious professional and your presence on Linkedin, can be seen by numerous professionals in your industry. Now is your time to shine.
Watch for my next tip on Linkedin – What you absolutely MUST include in your Linkedin Profile.
