1. Keep Your Profile Page Updated
If you are seriously looking for a job, keep your LinkedIn profile page updated as per your latest experience and expertise.

Likewise, as a job recruiter if you have added some claws to your job requirement, update it from time to time if you really want to hire the best person for the job.
2. Use Appropriate Summary And Haedline
Appropriate usage of summary section and your headline. Do not forget to use the summary section to highlight your skills and expertise. In case, you are relocating to a new place, mention it in your summary section so that recruiter can easily check your location in the time or months to come.
3. Highlight Your Recent Position
If you are already working with some organization, mention your current roles and responsibilities so that the job recruiter can hire you as per your skills and expertise only.
4. Show Your Growth Chart
If you are working in some company as an Asst. Manager, do not simply mention your title as an Asst. manager. Instead, start with the day you joined the company and show your growth chart of the current company. If you joined as a trainee, mention it in your profile page.
5. Your Dates Should Match With Your Resume
You should match everything before you update your profile page. Your date of birth, professional degree date, date of joining first job, etc. Every other detail that you give on your profile page should match with your resume else your profile page may not look genuine.
6. Cut The Unnecessary Things
If you already have good experience of working in an MNC and are now looking for a job change then you can skip some of the unnecessary job details like your first part-time job, etc.
