Internet Presence. “Crafting” your LinkedIn profile
Filed under: Position Searching, Public Relations docs
Posted by: site admin @ 12:32 pm

These days I encourage scientific, engineering and
technical professionals to include a web-page item in
their resume or CV heading.  For documents intended
to be sent or shared over the internet consider removing
the hyperlink, as some virus-prevention software will
block documents and emails containing hyperlinks.
(in Word:  right mouse click and select “remove
hyperlink.”)

Many have not formally developed their personal
web-page or have a shortened version of their
personal page as part of a larger group or
organization.  What can you do then?  You can list
your LinkedIn.com profile. 

We have suggested what you might list in the
profile in a previous post and comments mentioning
strong posts by Sital.
Recently, suggestions from myWesttexas.com
update this growing in importance element of
our career management and job search portfolio.
Four ways to strengthen your profile are:
-  use keywords in your descriptors of interests,
passions, accomplishments and competencies.
[’searchable keywords to your industry’]

-  it is not the quantity of connections one has,
but the quality of your connections that count.

-  join and participate thoughtfully in technical
group discussion, remembering the rules of
civility and nettiquette.

-  identify yourself with both a professional
internet address and a professional profile
photo doing something you wish to be identified
with.
