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 increases the possibility of your profile being viewed by a recruiter or future employer. Use your headline to give a quick overview of your experience and the type of job you would like. Instead of ‘unemployed but looking’, consider ‘Experienced Software Installation and Support Agent 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 you would like. Consider attaching your resume here as well and allow recruiters and future employers to review your full background as they view your profile.
LinkedIn allows for up to 50 skills to be added in your skills section. Make sure that the skills listed are related to your experience and your desired future position.
