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 aspects of your profile. Consider updating your headline to show your experience and what of job you are seeking. For example, instead of ‘unemployed at Everywhere’, you could say ‘Recent Graduate seeking Accounting Position’.
Adding a summary section would allow you to give an overview of your experience and explain more about types of positions that interest you. You could also attach your full resume to this section and allow recruiter and future employers to view it as they view your profile.
LinkedIn allows 50 skills to be added to the skills section of your profile. Make sure that this section truly reflects your abilities and is related to the types of positions you are seeking.
