Let’s go step by step
How to create a LinkedIn account?
First, we must go to the platform itself, that is, enter linkedin and then register. Here we must differentiate between personal and professional profiles and LinkedIn companies.
The image we project is essential to achieve an optimal result. We must take care of details such as that the photography we use has a good resolution and is professional. Another detail to consider is the profile background: customize it with an image that suits your professional profile; it is always better than the background that LinkedIn sets by default.
Extract: clear and concise
We should not miss these lines at the beginning of our profile since it is relevant when looking for jobs on LinkedIn since potential employers take advantage of this brief description to get an idea of the candidate. Therefore, please clarify what you do and for whom you do it and reflect on what differentiates you professionally from others.
The number of contacts matters
Although it may seem otherwise, the size of your network of contacts is very relevant. Reach at least +500 quality contacts! This, in turn, will lead to new communications that can help you search for jobs on LinkedIn.
Updated profile on LinkedIn
Keep your contact details and your education or work experience updated. Remember to describe the positions you have held and the achievements you have obtained. Attach multimedia content, for example, from projects you have developed whenever you can.
Keep the articles and activity section always dynamic, and take the opportunity to share information that may be of interest to your LinkedIn contacts, either by recommending news or by publishing your articles.
Skills and Volunteering
Complete the skills you have, and take the opportunity to highlight the ones that best match your professional profile. Also, add volunteer experience if you have it. Curiously, it is one of the most valued features by companies and recruiters when reviewing the different applications for job offers on LinkedIn.
They are public proof that someone “assures” your value as a worker, colleague, or project manager… They are one of the best ways to add credibility to your work.
