You don’t need to hire professional people to create a stunning LinkedIn profile; you can do it yourself by following these 5 secret tips.
1. Write An Engaging Summary
The summary is one of the first things people are going to see on your LinkedIn profile. We would recommend you put your best feet forward here. Make the summary about you, but make it short, simple, engaging as well as unique. Highlight your accomplishments and what you seek from your next job.
Tell what you are looking for. Tell what makes you passionate and what prompts you to perform best so that an employer understands if you’ll be a good fit for the company.
2. Set Up A Multimedia Profile
LinkedIn provides you with the tools to build an interesting and multi media profile helping you make your profile engaging. Use the options to add links pictures and videos and photos to make the profile visually appealing. Think of what you want the people visiting your profile to see and built your profile accordingly.
A creative looking profile gives employers an idea of your creativity and a sense of your understanding and your ability to make use of that understanding.
3. Reach Out To People
Don’t be afraid to make a connection with people related to your business even if you don’t know them. You’d be surprised at the number of people whom you haven’t meet, accept your invitation to connect.
LinkedIn is a place where you make professional connections, so single out influencers of your business on LinkedIn and don’t be afraid to send an invitation. You can add a note while sending invitations with a short “hello,” just to get the ball rolling.
4. Don’t Hold Back On The Details
You need be a narcissist for creating an excellent LinkedIn profile. We recommend you don’t hold back, but don’t lie. Make a list of the things that you are good and a list of the things that you can do based on your experience of previous jobs.
Write all about your success stories and as we said earlier, use multimedia to present your profile. In LinkedIn, you also have options of picking topics that interest you or any side project that you are working on.
