LinkedIn Booster tip 4

Show off your experience and qualifications

In previous tips I’ve talked about your professional photo, your headline and summary. But LinkedIn gives even more opportunities to show your experience and qualifications. Add your Education, starting with your university and after that, add other relevant education.

Who_you_areUnder the Experience section you add your work history. As a student or graduate you may not have that much work experience so list the jobs you’ve had, even if it was part time. Volunteer work is another important section especially if you don’t have so much work experience. Highlighting you volunteer experience in a skills-oriented way is a great. Volunteering shows employers that you are willing to try new experiences, that you are involved in your community and it generally demonstrates a willingness to take initiatives.

There is also a section called Honors & Awards. Even if you earned a price inside or outside school, don’t be shy, let the world know about it.
