- Include a Professional Photo
Profiles with pictures are 11 times more likely to be viewed!
- Change Your Profile’s URL
I suggest changing it to a variation of your first and last name. By shortening your URL, you can easily add it to your emails.
- Join Groups
Joining groups on LinkedIn is an easy way to stay connected with industries and companies that interest you. You can also join groups that you’re involved in, ex: UNC’s group.
- List Your Skills and Have Co-workers and Employers Endorse Them
This helps validate skills you have previously referred to on your profile.
- Add Rich Media
Include writing assignments, blog posts, videos, and portfolios (that relate to your career interests) in order to enhance your profile.
