Whether you are job hunting, gathering leads, or networking in your industry, having a professional, eye-catching profile is an excellent idea to make sure that you can be found by the right people at the right time.

First, it is not about you.  Write your summary in the first person (I accomplished ...).  With each statement that you write, consider who you are hoping will read it  and what they are taking away from it.  A recruiter, hiring manager, or potential customer wants to be able to imagine how you can help them.

Filling out a profile is not difficult, but here are some important best practices you should follow to make sure your profile is as powerful as possible.

  1. Start with a professional photo.  If you do not have a professional headshot, add that to your to-do-list, and go with the cleanest, most professional looking snapshot you have - and upgrade as soon as possible.  And smile - remember that photo is your first impression with a professional employer.
  2. Make your headline stand out.  By default, LinkedIn populates your headline with your job title and current company, but you don't have to leave it that way.  Consider listing your specialty and speaking directly to your audience.  Try to keep your headline to about ten words.
  3. Fill out the summary field with five - six of your biggest achievements.  Use bullets to make this easy to read.  You can also add media files, including videos.  If you are a speaker or presenter, an introduction video could be a great idea. 
  4. Add images or documents to your experience.  You can add media files to your experience section.  It is a great way to create a visual portfolio along with your standard resume information.
  5. Fill out as much of the profile as possible.  That includes skills, volunteer associations, education, etc.  This is the place to add the interesting stuff that does not fit on your resume, but paints you as a well rounded individual.  If your volunteer experiences directly pertain to your job search, put it in as work history.
  6. Keep your work history relevant.  You do not need to list every job you ever had.  Instead, list the jobs that are relevant to your current career goals. 
  7. Add links to relevant sites.  If you have a work-related blog or online portfolio , make use of the three URLs you are allowed on your profile and link to it. 
  8. Ask for recommendations.  Endorsements are great, but recommendations are the currency of the realm on LinkedIn.  Reach out to past colleagues, managers, and associates and ask that they write you a recommendation.
  9. Use status updates to share industry-relevant content.  This can help show recruiters that you are focused and in-the-know in your industry.

Follow these tips and you can ensure that you have a killer LinkedIn profile that will stand out to recruiters, hiring managers, and potential customers.
