Tips for Revamping your LinkedIn Profile

Please don’t wait. Start it.

The hardest part of any job is to start it. The same applies to revamp the LinkedIn profile too. You need to start working rather than just thinking about it. Start with simple tasks like drafting and putting ideas on paper. You need not perfect anything, start it out. Once you start things more than half of the job is done, that will help you roll ahead. 

Drafting on cloud

Whenever you have ideas, please put it on the document, any references, links (or) articles. Always save the content in a document in google drive (or) any other cloud platform. The above step ensures that the content remains forever and is never lost. Also, it’s an advanced notebook that can help you see different versions of edits, revoke back to an old state, and a whole lot of features. 

Articles, Tools, and Resources

Try to find a lot of articles and resources that are available for free on the web. There are thousands of materials and free tools that could help you build a fantastic profile. Notably, this resource https://www.linkedin-makeover.com/linkedin-resources/ had helped me in a lot of aspects. I will try to make a separate post later on tools and resources.

Getting Inspired

Getting inspired is a very crucial part of building any LinkedIn profile when you do not know where to start (or) how to build up. Having a look at some of the best profiles relevant to your industry that you could find online will inspire you and help you make up your mind at each stage. There are some fantastic profiles that you could find easily on the web.  

Experts and Friends

Try reaching out to experts that you could reach out through your circle, and they will be the best guides for which resources you could follow. Also, ask your friends there are no better guides who can assist you better than a friend whom you can talk freely to when you are not sure about what skills you should portray. 

Error Free document

You could put through some of the platforms that help you to avoid natural mistakes, errors. I used https://app.grammarly.com/.

There are a lot of other resources I have listed a few below:

  • Sapling
  • Ginger
  • WhiteSmoke
  • PaperRater
  • Reverso
  • SentenceCheckup
  • Hemingway App
  • LanguageTool
  • Slick Write
  • ProWritingAid

Finally, the LinkedIn profile cannot be made perfect out in a day, and it’s a process it keeps evolving from feedback, inputs, and how your career path changes. So, keep updating regularly and enhance based on data and different perspectives. It’s your LinkedIn profile, do not compare with others, evolve it in your way that you feel right, but keep taking productive inputs, which will make your profile better.
