LinkedIn is your dynamic online RESUME and professional networking directory.

• Professional head-shot of you
• Headline: Who you are professionally
• Resume:
– Professional highlights (if looking for employment, include the type of positions you are seeking)
– Specialties, volunteer activities, internships and extracurricular activities

LinkedIn Learning provides PROOF of practice to employers and other professionals. 

Keep it professional:

  • LinkedIn is for professional content & context only.
  • Build first. Then, share your profile.
  • Proper grammar and spelling is required
  • Before you post: Imagine seeing your LinkedIn post on a billboard on your way to work. 
  • Keep your profile updated
  • Avoid negativity
