Boost Your Visibility In 5 Minutes A Day On LinkedIn

Being visible is key to your career progression – but when we are busy we sometimes forget to make sure those who need to know about our strengths and successes do. If you are woman in the corporate world using your LinkedIn profile is ideal for this. Your contacts receive a weekly email of updates to their network so you can stay visible by appearing in the update each week. Here are some ideas of how to do this:

  • Use the status update to mention a project you have just completed, seminar you are speaking at or a book you have read
  • Update your profile with any additional skills you have learned or qualifications you have received
  • Remember to connect to people you meet and keep expanding your network
  • Search out and answer questions that are relevant to your market place – the more you do this the more you are positioned as an expert in your field
  • Follow companies in your marketplace – you can see new hires and where they have come from, they may have created a vacancy that would interest you
  • If you are looking for a career move keep an eye on the jobs area and who is in your network that could get you an introduction
  • Check out the news page so you can pass on industry news

Make sure your profile is up to date and most importantly ensure you have a great profile photo. Find more on raising your profile here.
