Career Directors International

LinkedIn changes so fast that the CDI Education committee felt it was time to bring you the new and the next by updating our Profile Writing tip sheet with an all-new done-for-you, white-labeled job seeker tip sheet that is free to you and can be customized, given away, bundled, or sold.

This LinkedIn profile writing tip sheet is a DEEP DIVE, sharing everything both you and your clients/prospects need to know to creative effective, winning profiles.

In fact, there’s so much involved in this 9-page tip sheet that we believe that sharing this (for a fee) with a client who doesn’t select a comprehensive package with LinkedIn profile development may have them coming back to invest once they realize all that’s involved in standing out on this all-important job seeker networking platform.

In this LinkedIn Profile Best Practices Tip Sheet we cover:

  • Definition of a profile.
  • What to do before you write, such as URL customization.
  • Resume vs LinkedIn profile — similarities and differences.
  • Important things to think about as you write such as voice for transitions, SEO and character count usage.
  • How to attain LinkedIn All-Star status.
  • Section overview with topics such as section reordering, features, and attachments.
  • Details on selecting the best photo.
  • Formula for writing the professional headline.
  • Strategy for writing the summary section.
  • Handling confidential information and confidential job search.
  • Multiple ways to share contact information.
  • Skills and endorsements section.
  • Seven elements of employment positions/section.
  • Four strategies for after the profile is complete.
  • Pros and cons of Open to Work banner usage.

+ Scroll down for newest elements you need to know + how to stay up-to-date with LinkedIn’s constant changes.
