With the new year right around the corner, this is the PERFECT time to make sure your resume’s up to date and in order. Today my friend Tori’s sharing some really great tips that’ll help you with your LinkedIn profile because let’s face it – it’s just as important as a paper resume these days.
LinkedIn: the ultimate networking and career-building website out there. Serving as a digital portfolio, it’s the Resume 2.0. It allows you to showcase yourself as more than just a professional, but also a person you’d want to grab a drink with after work.
As a social media marketer, Linkedin is usually a perpetually-open tab on my Mac. In addition to growing the LinkedIn profile for the company I work for, I love sharing my own blog posts about entrepreneurship and marketing. After recently starting my own #sidehustle, LinkedIn became even more important for building a quality portfolio and connecting with those who need social media and marketing assistance.
Anyone can have a LinkedIn profile, especially in this day and age. All it takes is responding to that pesky invite email in your inbox. It’s exponentially harder to have one that accurately and energetically conveys what you’re all about, and can be used to build new relationships
Instead of spending hours perfecting your profile, it’s smarter to focus on a few key items that will really make an impact. As the new year approaches, it’s time to give your profile the spruce-up it needs…without a complete upheaval. These 5 easy updates will add to your profile’s content and direction: try them out on your holiday plane-ride home or while in line at Target returning those maroon towels your aunt got you.
