5-Minute Tune-Up

2019 is rapidly coming to a close!  Now is the perfect time to complete a 5-minute tune-up on your LinkedIn profile to present your professional best in 2020.  

  • Background Photo:  Are you using a generic background photo?  If yes, switch this out to a photo that complements your personal brand.
  • Headshot:  Headshots taken by professionals make a big difference.  Spend the money to look your best. 
  • Contact Info:  Make sure your current email address and phone number are visible.  
  • Email Address:  Are you using an “old school” domain like AOL, Yahoo, or Carolina.rr?  If so, switch out to a modern address like Gmail.
  • About:  Is the “About” section of your profile completed and up-to-date?  If no, take the time to ensure this section is completed, current, and consistent in how you are promoting your personal brand.
