The review is written by our best linkedin profile writers and primary based on LinkedIn’s All Star level of completion. A complete profile helps you be found by your future employers or clients. To reach All-Star status, the best linkedin profile should include:
- Your industry and location
- An up-to-date current position (with a description)
- Two past positions
- Your education
- Your skills (minimum of 3)
- A profile photo
- At least 50 connections
Your profile picture and headline are two of the most important and most viewed elements of your profile. Instead of ‘Seeking New and Challenging Opportunities’, use your headline to give a quick summary of your background and the type of position you are seeking. One example of this could include ‘Electrical Engineer with over 10 Years Experience Seeking Position’.
Your summary section does a great job in describing your background. Attaching your resume to this section allows recruiters and future employers to learn more about you as they view your profile.
Consider asking trusted colleagues and former employers for recommendations that you can list on your profile. This will give more insight into you, your abilities and your character.
