Yesterday, we went through the basics of setting up an account and profile on LinkedIn. Today, we’re going to look much more in-depth at the LinkedIn profile and get ourselves to 100% profile completeness (or just about)!
You may be wondering why you need to bother with completing your profile – isn’t the bare minimum enough?
Well, according to LinkedIn, “Users with complete profiles are 40 times more likely to receive opportunities through LinkedIn.” Your profile becomes complete when you have:
- Your current position
- Two past positions
- Your education
- Your profile summary
- A profile photo
- Your specialties
- At least three recommendations
