We’re all familiar with the “New Year, New You” types of resolutions that crop up as January approaches. For 2019, why not apply a twist to that concept: instead of vowing to refresh your wardrobe or raise the bar on your workout regime, try revitalizing your LinkedIn profile with fresh feedback…Start by identifying four people in your network whose LinkedIn recommendations would add important insights to your professional experience and highlight four additional people in your circle worthy of a little professional love.
I had the fortune of being interviewed by the well-respected Will Richardson, based in San Francisco, on his Richardson Financial podcast. I share great tips on how to build a strong LinkedIn profile, how to build an intentional network, review on which LinkedIn subscription you should consider, how you can work with me to overhaul your profile, train you on how to use LinkedIn and/or bring me in for a speaking engagement.
If you are sourcing, recruiting and hiring top talent, make sure the compensation you are offering potential candidates is competitive. Keep your eye on LinkedIn Salary as another tool to stay relevant.
Be more prepared to talk about your earning potential when you go through the interview process. Use LinkedIn Salary in combination with Glassdoor (although, I foresee LinkedIn Salary replacing it soon) to prepare the ‘money conversation’ with your future employer.
Building relationships on LinkedIn is remembering that LinkedIn is an online networking tool. It is a platform to connect with people who you are doing, have done or want to do business with. It is a supplement to your current business process and another touch point to stay top of mind with the professionals who matter to you the most.
