The Ultimate Guide to a Perfect LinkedIn Profile

The Ultimate Guide to a Perfect LinkedIn Profile | Career Coaching | Scoop.it

...Before we jump into these recommendations, let me make one more point perfectly clear. These are not necessarily recommendations for the perfect LinkedIn profile if you're looking for a job. I am writing this from my own perspective, as someone who is using their LinkedIn profile to connect with influencers, partners or prospects. I already have a business and I am counting on LinkedIn to help me grow that businessand reach more of their nearly 200 million active monthly users.

 

All of the recommendations below are just that, recommendations. Take 'em or leave 'em however you'd like. Each can be implemented by going to LinkedIn, logging in, clicking on Profile in the top menu and then clicking on the greyEdit button. This will put your profile in edit mode, and you'll be able to change anything you need to. You may also want to take advantage of LinkedIn's suggestions and recommendations by clicking on the blue Complete My Profile button. LinkedIn will ask you a series of probing questions designed to get your profile even more complete....

Birkbeck Careers & Employability's curator insight, November 21, 2014 9:09 AM

With Christmas and the new year holiday season approaching, it is easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of tying up loose ends and spending the month shopping for presents for the family and loved ones. However, there tends to be a misconception that this time of year is when companies reduce their hiring activity. Quite simply, this is not true. This time of year can be particularly helpful to creating traction for the beginning of 2015, but there is no hard and fast rule that dictates that no hiring activity will be happening at all. Perry Newman, writes in this article that he has noticed two prevalent occurrences at this time of year. With the misconception that there is lessened hiring activity, active searchers believe it is acceptable to decelerate their efforts or even take a long hiatus and put their job search on hold until the new year arrives. The second is that too many out of work executives and professionals drift into a state of job search depression as the upcoming year approaches and they have yet to accomplish their job search goals and now they begin to doubt themselves and they lose the motivation to keep plugging away at their job search. He has put together three suggestions which can overcome the seasonal job searching blues. Are you going through the job search blues? Do you intend to slow down for the holiday period? Or, are you using the time to get ahead and make contacts? Let us know your thoughts and experiences.

The First Step to Being Powerful

The story you tell yourself shapes who you are — and what you can do.
Howard Fox's insight:

As the year slowly comes to a close, listen closely to your inner voice.  Do you talk about yourself  as a friend or the victim?  As this article shares, and which is based on good research, the way we talk of ourselves and to ourselves grants power – narrative power — Decide wisely.
