Optimisation

Does it really matter? Its almost impossible to keep on top of profile optimisation but everyone should ensure that important keywords are found in the following sections;

  • Headline
  • Job title
  • Company name (edit display name)
  • Skills

Most importantly you should build a strong network so that most people that might search for you are at least a 2nd tier connection.

Tip

Find old school or college mates by searching the Alumni section
