The Social Media Giant For Professionals

The Social Media Giant For Professionals

You’ve probably heard that having a solid presence on LinkedIn can help advance your career by expanding your network and attracting new opportunities. 

Then again, writing and updating your profile might also cause you to second-guess yourself as you try to fill out each section perfectly in the hope of impressing the right prospective employer. Understandably, many of us dread this process.

LinkedIn Headline

LinkedIn Headline

Your LinkedIn headline appears next to your name and picture at the top, and unless you rewrite it, it defaults to your job title.

The terms you use can help you show up in their searches. Choose each word with care—you want to fish with the right bait. If a particular employer exemplifies your dream job, check the company’s career page and make sure whatever title you use for yourself is similar to their positions.

Think of your headline like you would think about dressing for the job you want.

LinkedIn About Section

LinkedIn About Section

The About section is a great place to add details that your job description can’t really provide but that you think are important.

  • Sum up what motivates you and key qualities that make you stand out
  • One or two paragraphs or a handful of bullet points might suffice
  • If you're feeling ambitious, give some backstory.
  • What makes your work meaningful and compelling? Why do you feel called to it? What do you have that other candidates don't?

The Experience Section

The Experience Section

  • This is where you detail the various jobs you've had over the years.
  • You can tweak the way you describe your experiences to emphasize what's most relevant to your current interests.
  • Use the present tense for anything you're still doing and switch to the past tense for everything else.

The Education Section

The Education Section

  • Listing your degree(s) matters, as does where you got them.
  • If your degree is still in the works, include when you expect to finish it.
  • Apprenticeships and trade certifications are worth highlighting.
  • Be more detailed about the skills you've gained from the work you've been doing.

LinkedIn Skills Section

LinkedIn Skills Section

This section tends to be a keyword catcher.

If there are things you're good at and want to do more of, this means you'll pop up more often when people search for you on the site. However, be careful not to pigeonhole yourself.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
