Thank you for making the choice for this LinkedIn resource.
Giant, comprehensive how-to handbooks like 'LinkedIn for Dummies' are already out there. Inspired by my clients who need a quick, targeted solution and people who are new to the world of job searching and business networking, my aim here is to provide a general, realistic introduction about using LinkedIn for people without a lot of LinkedIn confidence or a large body of professional experience. You can benefit from the information here if you are:
a recent graduate
an ambitious university student seeking an internship or practicum (either in your region or internationally)
a career starter, career changer or someone reentering the job market who has never used LinkedIn or social media for business before
a specialist or skilled employee with some years in the field but no LinkedIn profile until now
an entrepreneur, creative or freelancer who has never considered adding a profile to LinkedIn before
a specialist or skilled employee with a LinkedIn profile that's been started with some initial content - but not yet optimized or carefully crafted
a member of LinkedIn with an empty profile (no content, no picture)
This book is a compact, practical guide to the bigger picture approach that also sheds light on selected must-have components such as the headline, job title, summary, task descriptions and visual components such as your background image and photo. You’ll learn about stepping into your readers’ shoes and what the business audience wants to see. You’ll understand more about the purpose behind your approach and using an intelligent, down-to-earth strategy for the content you include.
Since examples are so important, the last two sections include four charts with concrete lists of do’s and don’ts and short explanations. There are also several pages of examples and scenarios illustrating the kinds of content that a beginner could use, contrasted with the type of sample phrases that intermediate or advanced users could use. You’ll also get a few screenshots and some insider ideas and tips to help you get your message across using limited field space. In addition, I make some recommendations about further helpful resources and sources of inspiration along your job search journey and in crafting a LinkedIn profile (links are included). Based on my LinkedIn profile work with clients, we can cut right to clear, real life nuggets that will help you craft your first LinkedIn profile that's relevant and effective.
As a bonus I've included access to a LinkedIn background image bundle I've created especially for LinkedIn beginners like you. Further details and instructions are found in Section 4 and in the last section of the book.
In an information-overloaded world packed with massive portions of social media, business headlines and new trends, I’m grateful for any nutritious, easily manageable snacks that feed my brain. Infographics - which are short nuggets of information or data represented in an appealing graphic form - can be very powerful, especially when they clarify something practical in the working world, or explain an aspect of business etiquette.
In my mind, I picture infographics as cute little waiters who pass by with their trays, offering me samples of new and unknown foods and drinks. I can get a taste of the possible complexity and uniqueness of the flavours. Without pressure, I can pick the samples that are attractive, appetizing and capture my interest.
Now imagine your cute little waiter passes by with a sample cup of a mysterious drink. You take a sip of a complex, special and interesting blend of flavours. But you’re not sure exactly what it is.
Now imagine tasting LinkedIn flavours for the first time...
Interesting, but still with some unknown and mysterious ingredients.
Think of LinkedIn as a new mystery flavour you’ve been exposed to. It’s temptingly yummy, yet you want to find out more before you go any further.
Since infographics don’t provide a ‘nutritional chart’ or ‘list of ingredients’ - that is, background information or deeper explanation - it’s up to you to find out about the exact meaning and implications. Before running to the buffet to pile up your plate, it’s smart to step back, plan your approach and choose your calories wisely.
This is exactly why I wrote this compact e-book about LinkedIn: To outline a few key considerations and background things for you to keep in mind as a LinkedIn beginner, newbie and first-timer. As a professional resume writer, I create LinkedIn profiles and content for my clients. I help people at all professional levels who are using LinkedIn for the first time and who aren't exactly sure what to include or how to phrase their content. Now I want to save you some time and energy by giving you the highlights and must-do’s.
