How to use LinkedIn?
- To begin, add your profile picture, banner, cover image, and professional headline to the top box area of your LinkedIn profile. It's crucial to nail this section, as most visitors will bounce in the first few seconds otherwise.
- Second, make your Summary section enjoyable. Use as many of your available 2,000 characters to make this the most exciting part of your profile. Please avoid using lengthy paragraphs. Use bullet points to draw the reader in and explain who you are, what you do, and how you help others in no more than three lines. Include relevant industry keywords to improve your search engine optimization and online visibility.
- Third, navigate your news feed by clicking the "Home" button.
