THE TRUTH ABOUT KEYWORDS

FOUR MISTAKES PEOPLE MAKE WHEN CHOOSING THEIR LINKEDIN PHOTO

IF YOU ARE DOING THIS ON YOUR PROFILE YOU ARE EMBARRASSING YOURSELF AND MAY BE REJECTED BY EMPLOYERS!

BEWARE THE "AS SEEN ON" CON


AND KEEP THIS IN MIND WHEN USING LINKEDIN


THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF A LINKEDIN PROFILE FOR AN EMPLOYER OR RECRUITER


An unsolicited endorsement from a connection who took my advice:


Hi Bruce, I just wanted to send you a quick note after our last exchange quite a few weeks ago.  I am so happy you took a moment to email me when you did as I got suckered into gaining assistance from what I now consider to be a very unscrupulous company.  I had this very bad feeling as the woman was updating my LinkedIn profile with me on the phone, and you were one of the first to respond to the request to connect on LinkedIn with the article on the "scam".  I went in right away and undid everything they had changed on my LinkedIn profile, so I am now back to being "me" again, with no dishonest wording.  In addition, I listened to your six part webinar that same weekend, which was very helpful - so, THANK YOU!  After recently resigning from my role, I find myself looking for a new opportunity for the first time in my career, so, I am working to figure out the process of the "how to's", and now know my network is of great importance.  I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your email to me, and THANK YOU once again.  When something doesn't seem right, it usually isn't - and, I am honestly very embarrassed that I fell for it!  But, I can only go forward, and am thankful for people like you with integrity and ethics.  My thanks, again, Bruce!  I look forward to more of your webinars!! Have a great rest of the week!  - L.R.
