LinkedIn Profile Makeovers just got easier
August 9, 2011
Your LinkedIn Profile is your online professional identity; it helps you connect with others and be found for career opportunities. LinkedIn members with a complete and up-to-date profile are much more likely to receive new professional connections and messages, which can lead to a new business deal or a dream job. With the goal of helping you maintain a great LinkedIn profile, we are excited to announce our new "Improve Your Profile" Tool, an easy way to optimize your LinkedIn presence.
Think of it as a virtual profile adviser - just for you. The Improve Your Profile Tool analyzes your profile and offers you personalized profile recommendations to help you put your best foot forward. Click on the Improve your Profile button on your Edit Profile page to get started.
We have included a handy checklist guide on the right side of the tool which highlights your recommended steps. In the left column, we guide you through the steps with simple questions.
The tool is customized for every member. Also, it is constantly being updated, so if we introduce new profile sections like we recently did, you will find them as steps within this tool.
In addition to the Improve your Profile Tool, we have recently refreshed the visual display of our profile page. The more modern design enhances the overview section and makes it easier to share profiles and to export them via PDF and printable formats. We are always looking into innovative ways to enhance the profile experience and look forward to bringing you new ways to maximize and build your professional identity.
