A Perfect LinkedIn Profile Page

Step 1: IMAGE

As LinkedIn is associated with your Profession, it is always recommended to have your professional image as your profile photo.

Step 2: HEADLINE

LinkedIn allows only 120 characters to describe your Title or Headline. So describe your profession short but descriptive. Think of the professionals related to your job and the connections they search for and include them as keywords on your headline.

Step 3: EXPERIENCE

Describe your work experience with your current and past positions including the keywords you used in the headline.

Step 4: SUMMARY

Your profile summary should not only describe your profession but should explain who you really are. With the summary you provide, people really get to know about you and the way you can help them by connecting.
