Don’t Make These LinkedIn Mistakes

LinkedIn is the most important social media platform for professionals.  Jeff Bullas who is a well known blogger has this to say about LinkedIn…

When it comes to your online presence and your LinkedIn profile in particular, for years, I’ve been telling professionals: Brand or be branded”

In my opinion when you fail to create a compelling LinkedIn profile, you are basically telling the professional world one or more of the following:

  • You aren’t tech-savvy enough to know how to use social media
  • You don’t have any truly notable accomplishments
  • You have something to hide.

Check out this article that he’s written on the five biggest LinkedIn mistakes to avoid…

Let’ start at the bottom of Jeff’s list.  LinkedIn can do you no good if your profile isn’t public — or you’re not on LinkedIn at all.  There are over 330 million LinkedIn users.  Two new members join LinkedIn every second of every day.  It is the best place to network, especially when you’re looking for a job.

Do yourself a favor.  If you don’t have a LinkedIn account, set up one as soon as you finish reading the blog post.  If you do have one, follow the suggestions in the article.  You’ll be on your way to building a powerful network that will help you create the successful and fulfilling career you want and deserve.
