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. Consider editing your headline to give a better understanding of what you are seeking. Instead of ‘Unemployed at Currently seeking full opportunity in the accounting/finance field’, you could update your headline to say ‘Currently Seeking Opportunity in the Accounting/Finance Field’ or ‘Experienced Accounted Currently Seeking Position’.
In your education section, you list that you are ‘Currently enrolled and expect to graduate in September 2013’. This information may be confusing to profile views as this time period has passed.
LinkedIn allows space for up to 50 skills to be listed in your skills section. Make sure that the skills listed on your profile are related to your background and abilities. Skills most related to the types of positions you are seeking should be at the top of the list.
