Your online presence is crucial to your professional elevation and success. I recommend having a professional LinkedIn profile that highlights all your professional experience, credentials, and expertise, but that also includes any highlights of your personal and professional life that you would like people to know about. This can include things like volunteer work, awards, professional memberships, community engagement, relevant personal hobbies and interests and media coverage you’ve received, and more.
Your LinkedIn profile is part of your Professional Brand, and it encompasses everything you have done in a professional and impressive manner in order to build a solid professional network that can help you stand out as a leader in your industry which can enhance and advance your career tremendously.
There is so much you can do to enhance your LinkedIn profile professionally. I highly encourage my clients to include the following components at minimum, in addition to their professional expertise and accomplishments to establish a professional and stand out profile:
These points will take your LinkedIn profile from boring and basic to professional and impressive quickly, and will help solidify you as a leader in your industry and help you advance your career exponentially.
