Spell check your text and pay attention to grammar
Needless to say, the first impression really matters! You don’t want to seem sloppy and ignorant and there are many writing apps and platforms that can help you with that.

Virtual networking matters too
Don’t be just a lurker! Follow companies of your interest, like and comment on their posts. It’s a great opportunity to show some interest and knowledge on a relevant topic! And even more important - the enthusiasm.

Be active and keep your profile updated
It’s important for your info to be relevant and up to date. Don’t pile up your student activities and outdated online courses you once took in freshman year, focus on the present and stay present in everyday LinkedIn communication.

Pick a great and authentic photo
A good recruiter with an experienced eye can make a lot of conclusions about a person by the way they choose to present themselves. Neutral backgrounds and some attention to hair and clothes can go a long way. Authenticity can make you stand out from the LinkedIn crowd even more. If you’re not sure what your photo says about you, you can always test it in one of the ‘test your profile picture’ softwares.

Use right keywords and skills
Use right keywords and skills reflecting the right skillset and not all that is trending at the moment. Your skills count as keywords in your LinkedIn profile. Putting a certain word as a skill will make your profile show up when someone searches for it. Think through the skills you would like to state, remove all buzzwords and keep it clear and concise.

Ask for a recommendation, they go a long way
If you wouldn’t go to a hotel or a restaurant without checking its reviews, why would someone hire you without any? Ask your colleague, boss, or the guy you wanted to start a start-up with in college to write you a recommendation. Never ever try to make this stuff up on your own!

Recommendations on how to manage a successful profile and retain an interesting online presence

Personalize your connection requests. Don’t start with a generic message. Start by talking about what you have in common.

Follow professionals you admire. Don’t be afraid to engage with the content they provide. Be active.

Check In daily. Don’t miss a thing. Your chances of finding a great job depend on your timing.

Add media to your profile. Don’t think that people just want to read your well-written descriptions. Show them real-life examples of the work to boost your credibility.

Contact people who look at your profile. Don’t ignore those interesting stalkers. This is a great opportunity to reach out.

Meet your contacts in-person. Don’t rely only on this wonderful platform. You can make great deals over a cup of coffee.
