Your LinkedIn profile is not a resume, but it does share some of the same features and qualities. How, then, should it be different—and how important is that?
But, in essence, when writing your LinkedIn profile:
- Make it different (from your resume)—a complement, not a copycat!
- Make it conversational.
- Tell your stories.
- Share more—add-ons that help reveal who you are and what you do well.
- Share less—be careful about confidential information that might be in your resume but should not be in a public forum.
LinkedIn is incredibly powerful and broad-reaching. A great profile can definitely boost your job search and your career overall. Let me know if you need help writing your profile—it’s one of the things I most love doing!
