How to Become a LinkedIn Power User - #infographic
You can see why it’s time to get serious about how you’re representing yourself. Your LinkedIn profile should wow employers and help you land that dream role. The impression it gives can be the difference between being the preferred candidate and being written off.
So how do you deck out your profile and make it an effective extension of your personal brand?
Getting found by potential employers is the first step. Try spicing up your profile’s headline by adding specific projects or personal details. More than just visually striking, it gives you the opportunity to highlight why employers should look at you rather than the competition.
Once an employer is looking at your profile, make sure you make an impact. Tailor your summary to make sure the key points are going to be memorable. Use strong examples of experience and avoid the use of cliched descriptions such as being “passionate” about x and “highly motivated” by y.
With some strategic work and clever planning you can make your LinkedIn profile an exceptional addition to your professional repertoire!
