Topic for Day 3: 10 LinkedIn mistakes to avoid

Here are the 10 LinkedIn mistakes you need to avoid:

  1. Typos in your profile. LinkedIn does not have a in-built spell checker, which increases the likeliness of making typos.
  2. No profile picture. Profiles with pictures get 7 times more clicks.
  3. Improper picture. Facebook is for personal pictures, LinkedIn is for professional ones.
  4. Poorly described job title.
  5. Not utilizing LinkedIn groups. Begin with our group –
  6. Non Personalized connection request
  7. Non unique LinkedIn URL.
  8. Missing Summary
  9. Missing Recommendations
  10. Not making use of Sections. Break your profile and make use of sections such as “Volunteering,” “Certifications,” or “Organizations.”
