23 #EPSHRM 24 Branding Yourself on LinkedIn #EPSHRM 25 Complete Your Profile Professional photo Descriptive headline

Experience, education, certifications Organizations, volunteer work Publications (articles, videos, photography) #EPSHRM 26 LinkedIn Profile Checklist Photo: It doesnt have to be fancy. Wear a nice shirt and dont forget to smile. It is more inviting. Headline: Tell people what youre excited about now & the awe-inspiring things you want to do in the future. Education: Starting with college, list all the educational

experiences you've had - including summer programs or year abroad. Courses: List the classes that show off the skills & interests you're most excited about. Summary: Describe what motivates you, what youre skilled at, and whats next. As well as your contact information. Volunteer Experiences & Causes: Even if you weren't paid for a job, be sure to list it. Admissions officers and employers often see volunteer experience as just as valuable as paid work. Experience: List the jobs you held, even if they were parttime, along with what you accomplished at each. Even include photos, writes ups or videos from your work or of

your work. Skills & Expertise: Add at least 5 key skills - and then your connections can endorse you for the things you're best at. Think of this as your personal SEO (search engine optimization). Recommendations: Ask managers, peers & co-workers who've worked with you closely to write a recommendation. This give extra authority to your strengths & skills. *Dont forget to all give out recommendations this expands your network & your credibility as well.* Honors & awards: If you earned a prize, dont be shy. Let the world know about it!

Projects: Whether you led a team assignment or built an app or website on your own, talk about what you did & how you did it. #EPSHRM 27 LinkedIn Publishing Way for members to contribute professional insight Long-form content becomes part of your profile Searchable on and off LinkedIn Added to Pulse section (if content is relevant)
