The 7 Traits of the LinkedIn Aficionado

The 7 Traits of the LinkedIn Aficionado | All About LinkedIn | Scoop.it

Have I told you lately that I love LinkedIn?

 

My affection for LinkedIn is part of the success mindset I embrace, one which I teach others to cultivate. As a LinkedIn brand ambassador, I stand behind the company and uphold the integrity of its stated mission. I marvel at the inherent excellence of the site, its structure, and the sheer power of its engine. I have unswerving devotion to my role as a LinkedIn educator.

 

My work leads me into many conversations with people of varying attitudes toward LinkedIn and what it can accomplish. From them I gain even more layers of perspective, which fuels my fondness. I contend that I am one of the company’s true success stories. LinkedIn has given me a vehicle with which I can make a positive impact on the professional lives of others.

Your profile - Steinfeld has some other tricks up her sleeve. Make sure your profile’s headline “reflects the job you’re seeking, not the job you currently have.” (That’s the biggest mistake job applicants make, she told me.) She also urges applicants to maximize the power of LinkedIn by joining their college page, former employer pages, or professional/trade associations. Keep up with your connections even when not seeking a new position, she urges, which will make it easier for you to ask for introductions when the time comes. More than anything, Steinfeld stressed the importance of having a connection with someone inside the organization where you want to work.

donhornsby's curator insight, March 1, 9:05 AM
These changes to the platform are more cosmetic than technical and only time will tell if they enhance the site long term. For newcomers and those who don’t use the advanced features, the changes are certainly worth it. For more experienced users, it doesn’t offer much in terms of newness yet. However, it’s still early days for potentially larger changes, as Microsoft only acquired LinkedIn in December.
