LinkedIn Tips for a great profile

By
 

Lisa Pratt, Founder of Madi Talent Studio passes on a few quick tips on how to improve our profiles and get the most out of LinkedIn.

  • Use a Banner image that reflects the
    business you are in or skill set you have
  • Use a professional photo that clearly
    shows your face
  • Use a headline that reflects who you
    are/what skills you have rather than just
    your job title
  • Spend time and energy on your summary.
    This part of your profile will get more
    attention than the list of jobs you have had
    that sit below your summary. Talk about
    who you are, your journey, the things that
    give you credibility, any awards you have.
  • Give and request recommendations.
    These are your online reference checks.
