Before you start, be clear on what type of job you’re after. Are you just searching aimlessly or are you after a certain job role or work in certain industry.
Who is your LinkedIn profile for? Is it for recruiters, HR personnel, employers etc. You may have to tailor it for your audience.
Don’t just use any photo. Pick a good professional photo, preferably a headshot. Make right impression.
Your tag/headline is important. It helps to tell others about you e.g. if you a job seeker, what type of jobs you after etc. Make sure you think about it. If need be, look at other similar profiles for ideas.
Don’t overload your profile with too much information. Keep it concise, clear & to the point (like your CV).
If you link your social media accounts to your LinkedIn profile, remember to always be professional using them.
Like a CV, keep your profile updated & check for spelling & grammar mistakes.
Looking at other’s profiles can help to inspire you to develop yours.
