A Guide to Presenting Your Best Self on LinkedIn

LinkedIn is a professional social media platform. Many of LinkedIn’s members can introduce you to new opportunities.

Take a look at our top tips for improving your LinkedIn profile:

  • A Professional photo – Make a good impression to viewers by wearing what you would like to wear to work, and don’t forget to smile 😊
  • Key words in your headline -Make your headline more than just a job title, using key words will make you stand out to recruiters
  • Skills, work history and achievements – Make your profile like a CV, emphasise your skills and work history to potential employers
  • Grow your network – Connect with people within your industry or within an industry you want to be a part of. The bigger your network the more discoverable you are to employers
  • Request recommendations – Recommendations take things a step further. Contact your best customer and clients to see if they will give you a recommendation
  • Like share and comment – The more you interact with your connections the more people you will reach
  • Publish related content – Post related content to what you are interested in and what your connections would be interested in. Post something that would start a conversation. Post something that would be helpful. Post something that sparks innovation.

Use LinkedIn like it’s your CV and always keep it professional.
