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. Having a profile picture makes your profile more likely to be viewed by recruiters and future employers. Instead of ‘unemployed at n/a – currently unemployed’, 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 ‘Experienced Retail Manager Seeking Position’.
Adding a summary section to your profile 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 resume to this section to provide your full background to interested future employers.
Your experience section should expand on the information listed in your summary. Consider adding more of your experience, such as your past experience and your duties, to this section.
LinkedIn allows space for up to 50 skills to be listed in your skills section. Your profile currently has 0 skills listed. Having skills related to your previous positions and the position you are seeking will give your profile visitors a better understanding of your abilities.
You currently have 2 connections. Adding connections, including friends, family and former coworkers will increase your chances of your profile being viewed by companies that would be interested in hiring you.
