A few weeks ago I was interviewed by the Financial Times asking for me to share some advice on how MBA's can leverage LinkedIn to get a job. There is some great advice in the article, not just from me. I recommend you check out the article here.
There is one piece of advice that they did not publish from me or anyone else they interviewed. If you can, make sure that you share examples of your work on your profile.
This can come in a lot for forms. Here are a few examples.
-Link in your profile to a news article about a product you worked on
-Post a YouTube video of something you have recorded that's work related
-Post something you've written for work. It could be a blog post, writing sample or anything in-between.
Look at how my friend and former classmate Nathan Tanner does it on his profile.
People will be able to see what you can really do and get a much deeper understanding of your skills and abilities.
You might be saying, "What I do can't be put on my LinkedIn profile...". To that I say, dig deep. There is always something.
