Linked In is a great way to network and get connected with people across the world. No matter if you are currently looking for a job/internship, you should have a linked in account. One never know when they will want a different job, or another internship. However, if an individual continues to build their profile, they will be a more reliable choice when employers are searching and in need for employees.
With the four tips I have created above, they will help anyone in need of becoming a Linked In professional.
The first tip I can give to others is to not be afraid to put yourself out there. Do not be afraid to invite people you do not know to connect on LinkedIn. It’s all about putting yourself out there and making those connections. Who knows when you will need a certain individual, right?
The next tip I would want to give you is to write a brief biography, or introduction of yourself. Tell if you go to school, what year you are, your major, and your job position. Also, I encourage you to add what you want to do with your degree after college. This will give others a little bit of information about yourself before they reach out to you personally.
My third tip I want to share is to add your skill sets. If you do this, people can endorse you on what they know you do best. If you also add your skills, this is another way people will be able to see what all you know how to do. Also, if people endorse you, anyone can see that so, it looks good when you have multiple people endorsing you. It makes you look like a reliable individual.
My final tip is to join groups that interest you. In doing this, you will be able to connect with people that have the same interests as you. This is good because you will be able to ask for advice and maybe even find internship possibilities within that group. With this, you will have connections with everyone in that group and you will be able to talk to those individuals.
With these helpful tips and tricks, you can be a Linked In professional in no time!
