Today, being on LinkedIn and being a professional go hand in hand. No longer is your LinkedIn profile just an online copy of your professional resume; it’s so much more!
Your resume tends to be static, but that’s not so with your profile. Being active on LinkedIn enables the platform to capture your interactions with your professional network, keeping your digital presence up to date. Plus, you can make LinkedIn your primary source for professional achievements, pulling from it to update your resume when needed.
Better yet, use your LinkedIn profile as your “base of operations” for anyone that wants to know about your professional life. In just a few minutes, they can learn your professional story and glean your skills and abilities. This will empower them with the knowledge to understand the opportunities that are right for you. Maybe it’s a job offer. Or maybe it’s a project. Regardless, a strong LinkedIn profile leaves the door open for when opportunity comes knocking.
