Hello everyone, today's subject is a bit challenging for me. I have to admit I don't spend too much time on LinkedIn and when I do, is because I'm searching for a job or I'm trying to connect with people from the Social Media industry. I remembered back in May we had a workshop on how to set up a LinkedIn profile at SFU offered by one of my talented classmate, Minerva Ward.
Since then, I have updated it at least 3 times but for now I have been using it to do some networking and also to have a professional profile on social media and for my networking cards. My profile, as you can see, is concise (at least that is what I think) and I highlighted all my work experience from my native country, Peru.
On my summary I express my interest in Social Media and that I'm available for a freelance contract. Sometimes I think I should write more but on the other hand, when people look at your profile they just scan for keywords so I stick to that.
I must say, I don't know (until now and thanks to Natalie) how to create a LinkedIn page but I know is necessary since me and two other friends are planning to start our own consulting business. Professionally, I believe my profile looks good, I would be really happy if I can have some comments on how it looks like and if I should change or add some things.
Well, I guess this blog post response was more on my personal experience with LinkedIn but thanks to this challenge, I discovered that is much more than just an online resume.
Looking forward to your comments on my LinkedIn profile
