These days, a good LinkedIn profile can land you a job just as quickly as a good resume. That’s why it’s a good idea to always keep your LinkedIn profile not only up to date, but also looking amazing. This infographic has some great tips on the later, for example, making a catchy headline, using a professional image, seeking endorsements and recommendations from co-workers and industry professionals, and including all of your contact information.
While you can get away with updating your resume for each job you apply to and then forgetting about it, the same can’t be said about your LinkedIn profile. Aside from adding many people so you have connections to just about everyone in your industry, it’s also a good idea to update your activity daily with professional content. Also, remember that this profile is publicly searchable, so always include keywords to help your profile be located by those searching for employees in your profession.
