DO ensure your content SECTIONS are relevant, clear and to the point. Your LinkedIn profile is basically just a reformation of your CV. Think of it as your digital CV. These are your main sections to follow;
HEADLINE: Make sure it rounds you up as a creative or tells the employer what you do. Such as “Fashion Design Student" or "Content + Social Media Intern".
SUMMARY: This is basically the profile section on your CV. Need a little help? I have written about how to write a perfect profile in this FYI guide.
MULTIMEDIA: You can upload your PDF portfolio or link to your site! So make sure you do this if you have these assets.
EXPERIENCE: Like your CV list all of your RELEVANT experience, please don’t list that you have worked at Nando’s! Make sure you briefly describe the role and your duties. Always make sure you have the company logo visible too; it looks a lot more professional.
EDUCATION: Just like your CV, add in your most relevant education.
SKILLS: This is one of the most important sections! Employers love to see SOFT and HARD skills. So really put some time and thought into this. Refer to some relevant job role descriptions to give you some skills inspo.
RECOMMENDATIONS: This is basically an employer reference and adding recommendations to your LinkedIn profile will make you seriously creditable. It’s like your seal of approval! Think about who you want to ask, write them a personal message and then send them a recommendation request. For info on how to do this, read this article.
INTERESTS: it's great for brands to see who and what you are into. So start building this.
