More Tips on How to Make A Great Linkedin Profile
How can you improve your presence in social media, especially in professional networks? The first thing to do is create a complete and detailed profile. Then, you must add all your previous work experience. Briefly describe your responsibilities in each of the companies for which you have worked. Just 2-3 lines will be more than enough. Employers don’t want to waste their time reading all of your daily tasks.
The most important thing is to add key achievements that speak for themselves. For example, if you’re an Accountant. Your future employer will like to know how you contributed with annual projections and taxes.
Good spelling is an essential part of every profile. If a candidate doesn’t even know how to write, the company will lose all interest in them. So be sure to double-check every time you update it.
Start creating a list of contacts and follow the companies that you are interested in on your different social networks. This way, you will make yourself known.
The Bottom Line
In this new digital era, it is essential to leave our mark and make a difference by standing out among other candidates. Remember that having a digital identity is the new cover letter. So spend a day updating all your profiles as you would do with your résumé.
