Whether you like it or not, social media has become an unavoidable fact of life. You may feel overwhelmed by all of the tweets and status updates or have managed to stay off the grid altogether. Either way, if you are a working professional or have any hope to be, we have already established why you should be LinkedIn.
But if you plan to use the tool, you need to make sure you’re using it appropriately. Here are 3 quick tips on how to jump-start (or perhaps, revive) your LinkedIn profile:
Once you have a profile on LinkedIn, make sure not to neglect it. Update your information if you are promoted to a new position or take on new job responsibilities. Meet a new person at a work conference or happy hour? Send them a connection request after you get their business card or utilize an app like Evernote to do it for you. You’ll find that the small steps you take now will help tremendously someday when you find yourself in job search mode.
