Up Your LinkedIn Game in 2019
Make 2019 the year you take your professional online presence to the next level. An easy place to start is with your LinkedIn profile.
First, upload a professional photo. Profiles with a photo get 40 percent more in-mail response. But don’t make it a casual family photo. Think of what you’d have on a business card, and choose the photo wisely.
Make a descriptive headline that captures what you do. Then tell your story with a summary of work experience. The summary section on LinkedIn is the place to showcase your achievements and professional goals. Include your location, industry and education background. (But you might want to leave off your graduation year.)
Get recommendations for your skill set from people who know the quality of your work.
Share updates often. People who share 2-5 times a day see an increase in profile views and engagement.
