5 Tips to Using LinkedIn Better
1. Put a professional-looking headshot on your LinkedIn profile
2. Use your profile header on LinkedIn to make yourself stand out more
Here’s the header to mine:
People Hire Me for No BS Career Coaching — Job Search, Hiring, Career Transitions, Management & Leadership Success Globally
You can do something to make your profile’s header more effective.
3. Finish your profile. Particularly if you are a consultant, make sure you list many of the firms you consulted to over the past five years.
4. Write a description of what you did at your former employers with keywords and search engine optimization in mind. The idea is to get yourself found.
5. Add to your connections
