In today’s technological world, part of being a professional means representing yourself and networking online. That’s where LinkedIn comes in. LinkedIn is a social media platform focused on business-oriented social networking. It is a great way to manage your professional identity and build your connections. But, there are a few tips to being successful on LinkedIn. Here are the three things to think about when connecting online:
Fill out your profile—The first step to succeeding on LinkedIn is to fully fill out your profile. Include your at least your last three positions, companies and a bulleted list of your responsibilities. Add a professional headshot and include a personal website. Don’t forget to include your education, awards and volunteering experience.
Join groups—LinkedIn is an online networking and continuing education platform. That means, LinkedIn suggests groups, articles, companies and jobs that best fit you to learn more. Search for groups in your field and join a few to learn tips and tricks of the trade.
Act as in real-life—Don’t confuse networking in LinkedIn as different in real life. You would never just go up to someone and say, “Hey! Let’s connect.” Cultivate a more gentle greeting. When you want to connect with someone, send them a message introducing yourself and stating why you’re interested in connecting.
