Linkedin created by Reid Hoffman in 2002 is a social network for work professionals to connect, interact and also to recruit. Mashable states over 161 million professionals worldwide have connected with Linkedin since its official launch in May 2003. According to Linkedin, two or more new memberships are created passing second.
But a sad tale behind many of these millions of users is that they are not leveraging the true networking potential Linkedin has to offer. Most of them just create an account and add information for the sake of having a Linkedin profile without actually giving it a serious thought. Hence it would be wise to invest a little bit of time and effort to transform your rather ‘naked’ profile into a professionals attracting magnet.
Solomo IT Academy has given an elaborated guide to improve your Linkedin profile and make it apparent and distinguished from the rest of the pack. The most vital actions to be taken to revamp your profile are as follows:
- Review and Update Your Profile Frequently
- Build Your Network
- Be Visible and Valuable
- LinkedIn Endorsements
- Be Active on LinkedIn
There would be a workshop conducted by zMessenger and SolomoIT Australia on 22nd of October from 8.30 AM on wards with aim of ‘Social Selling Leads from LinkedIn’. diGIT IT Magazine is proud to be the Communications Partner for the event.
