Quick LinkedIn Tips
1. Removing “People Also Viewed”
If you’re not pleased with the “People Also Viewed” since it features competitor profiles in the right-hand column of your profile, you can remove it.
Click on “Settings & Privacy” from the drop-down menu that will appear after you click on the “Me” tab.
Next, go to Account Preferences and click on the “Viewers of this profile also viewed” option.
Turn off the toggle switch from “Yes” to “No”.
2. Create a Profile Badge
Do you own a blog, website or personal portfolio? Create a Profile Badge for the purpose of inserting it there.
Go to “Edit my profile”
Select the “Create a badge” option and choose the format of your preference, copy the code and add it.
3. Make Your Profile Mobile Friendly
Nearly half of LinkedIn users are using the mobile app, so it’s important to ensure your Headline and About section features important keywords and pertinent details about yourself in a concise manner. Consider the length of a tweet.
4. Pay It Forward
The best way to receive recommendations is to give them, so take the time to write them for others. These act as a validation of your skillset and personality, which can be very attractive to employers.
