CREATING YOUR PROFILE

YOU ARE 40X MORE LIKELY TO BE FOUND IF YOUR LINKEDIN PROFILE IS COMPLETE.

HOW TO COMPLETE YOUR PROFILE • CURRENT POSITION • TWO PAST POSITIONS • EDUCATION • PROFILE SUMMARY • PROFILE PHOTO • SPECIALTIES • THREE RECOMMENDATIONS

HAVE A COMPELLING HEADLINE

THAT DESCRIBES WHAT YOU DO

OR AN AREA OF SPECIALTY

NOT YOUR TITLE

NOT YOUR CONTACT INFO, EITHER Eventually, LinkedIn will Make you take this down.

USE A PROFESSIONAL LOOKING PHOTO

USE KEYWORDS TO INCREASE YOUR VISIBILITY • HOW WOULD SOMEONE SEARCH FOR YOU? HOW WOULD YOU FIND SOMEONE LIKE YOU ONLINE? • PUT KEYWORDS IN YOUR HEADLINE • WORK YOUR KEYWORDS IN WITHIN THE FIRST 250 WORDS OF YOUR DESCRIPTION • IN THE BOTTOM OF YOUR INTERESTS SECTION, ADD YOUR TOP 50 KEYWORDS

USE THE WEB TO INCREASE YOUR VISIBILITY • SET UP YOUR PUBLIC PROFILE • CLAIM YOUR PUBLIC URL • ADD WEBSITES TO YOUR PROFILE

WRITE A GOOD SUMMARY • THE SUMMARY HAS TWO SECTIONS: PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE AND GOALS; AND SPECIALTIES IN YOUR INDUSTRY OF EXPERTISE • BE CONCISE • PICK 3-5 OF YOUR MOST IMPORTANT ACCOMPLISHMENTS • ORGANIZE YOUR SUMMARY IN A WHO, WHAT, GOALS FORMAT • USE THE RIGHT KEYWORDS • BE HONEST BUT DON’T BE SHY.

RECOMMENDATIONS • REPUTATION MATTERS – YOUR PROFILE AND REPUTATION IS TIED TO EVERY RECOMMENDATION YOU MAKE • TRANSPARENCY MATTERS – DON’T WRITE EXACTLY THE SAME RECOMMENDATION FOR EVERYONE • CONTENT MATTERS – RECOMMENDATIONS SPEAK VOLUMES FOR WHAT THEY DO AND DON’T SAY • • • RECOMMENDATIONS ARE OFTEN MUTUAL. REQUESTING RECOMMENDATIONS IS NORMAL. BEST WAY TO GET RECOMMENDATIONS IS TO GIVE THEM.

MOST IMPORTANT? KEEP YOUR PROFILE UPDATED

ADDING CONNECTIONS

LINKEDIN CONNECTIONS • CONNECTIONS ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE PART OF YOUR NETWORK • YOU CAN ADD CONNECTIONS BY: • BROWSING AND INVITING • SENDING AN INVITATION THROUGH EMAIL • IMPORTING EMAIL CONTACTS

ADD BY BROWSING

ADD BY BROWSING

SEND DIRECT INVITATIONS

IMPORT YOUR EMAIL CONTACTS

SUGGESTIONS FOR CONNECTING • CONNECT WITH PEOPLE YOU KNOW OR SHOULD KNOW • CONNECT WITH THOSE WHO HAVE SHARED NETWORKING GOALS • EMAIL SOMEONE BEFORE CONNECTING IF YOU DON’T KNOW THEM • PERSONALIZE YOUR MESSAGE, DON’T USE THE STANDARD LINKEDIN TEMPLATE
