Like many people, I slowly allowed myself to ignore LinkedIn and undervalue that free and valuable resource. Following a nearly two-year absence, I was pleased to log into and find new profile enhancements that showcase ambitious professionals and highlight our expertise in ways that make us look very capable to potential clients and employers. If you’re job hunting, or a Solopreneur in search of project work, Proteus Leadership LinkedIn these attributes can be a real plus. It’s time to take another look at LinkedIn.

LINKS. My favourite new feature is the website link that all professional experience listings now offer. Click the link; copy/paste the business web address to the dialog boxsee the nice picture that pops into the art box; click , then click to profile and presto! Your profile will comprise eye-catching images that entice interested parties to research your affiliated organizations as well as the expertise that you’ll contribute.You may also link a photograph, document, presentation, or a video and supply decent insight to the business and your role there.

SPOTLIGHT. Above your profile photo and headline project list, notice the ticker tape of skills spotlight options that you can click on, fill and add even more details to showcase your experience, professional activities and achievements. I saw questions which pertained to classes and activities that I participated in at school; posts I might have lately published; and work samples or special projects I might add to my profile.

GROUPS. The awards’ organizers invited me to combine the LinkedIn group that’s exclusive to judges. I occasionally follow talks to discover what I can learn and contribute. I suggest that you explore LinkedIn classes, starting with your faculty alumni group, which is a great resource professionally and personally.
