Winning With Women Wednesdays – 8 Steps To Create a Winning All-Star Linkedin Profile

LinkedIn All Star Tips

We all know that in today’s society first impressions do carry quite a bit of weight. However, many professionals today still don’t see that their digital first impression may be killing their brand’s virtual presence online.

LinkedIn

LinkedIn has more than 225 million users which makes it the world’s largest professional social network. However, with the sheer volume of LinkedIn members standing out from the crowd can be quite difficult. However, there is a way to create an All-Star Linkedin profile, all you need to do is follow these eight easy steps.

8 Steps to an All-Star Linkedin Profile

1. Add a picture.

Camera Lens

But not just any photo will do. This should be a professional head shot, not a backyard BBQ photo that you happened to have stored on your laptop or smartphone. By adding a professional head shot you will let others know that you care about the way others perceive you and they will appreciate that you take your profession seriously.

2. Add a headline.

A headline is meant to grab a readers attention. Make every word count and sometimes less is more. No need to give a biography, instead give titles, areas of expertise, something that a reader will remember you by.

3. Create a background summary.

What's Your Story

When writing your summary be sure to never write it in third person. This often leads visitors to think that you are not running your LinkedIn profile, this could turn off potential leads and/or networking opportunities if others don’t believe you are easy to reach.

4. Demonstrate past performance.

Fragile

Nothing stands out more, than an impressive history of experience when viewing someone’s LinkedIn profile. Be sure to not include every job you had since high school, unless you are new to the workforce. This is a place where you can really shine by placing internships, positions, and/or roles you held that all pertain to your industry expertise. This portion of your LinkedIn profile should be held with care, as this is what can easily position you to be one of the best in your business if completed wisely.

5. Sometimes keywords DO matter.

Think outside the box

LinkedIn allows you to select words that pertain to your current role, or previous experience. The best way to select keywords for yourself is to pretend you are someone else who is looking for someone who offers your services, and/or someone who holds your current role. What words would they type to find you? This is a great place to start.

6. Word of Mouth recommendations exist EVEN online.

Second in line to experience, is the recommendations section of your LinkedIn Profile. This builds credibility amongst all who may come and visit your profile. But it’s usually not given unless asked for, so you must be proactive in getting it from those who could recommend your services in the future. Also, remember it’s not the quantity it’s the quality, it is much better to receive a well-crafted recommendation from your peer, than a few words from a higher lever director/C-Suite executive.

7. Care. Participate. Share.

Crowd

Remember one of the reasons why people join LinkedIn is to show others they are knowledgeable about their field of expertise. This is extremely hard to prove if you aren’t active in LinkedIn groups, or choose not to share qualitative content from others. By showing you care and participate in conversations, it is more likely you will be accepted in online peer-to-peer discussions and others will want to share your content.

8. Always complete your ENTIRE profile.

One hundred percent

Did you know LinkedIn profiles that are 100% complete, receive 40x more visibility in comparison to others that aren’t? In case you were wondering a 100% Complete LinkedIn Profile includes:

• Your Industry & Location
• An up-to-date current position/description
• 2 past positions
• Your educational background
• A minimum of 3 skills
• A profile photo
• At least 50 connections

Hopefully by now, you realize the impact a LinkedIn profile has on your potential audience and the way they perceive your brand. So instead of sitting on the sidelines, be sure to create an All-Star LinkedIn profile and get ready to join the Big Leagues.

Feature Friday: Interview With Jack Hayford

Interviw with Jack Hayford

This week we decided to spotlight one of our very own, Jack Hayford. Jack is a Coatings Chemist here at MILSPRAY™ and we had a fun time interviewing him this week. To find out more read the interview in it’s entirety below.


How did you first learn about MILSPRAY™?

I responded to a Coatings Chemist job posting.  After I had my first phone interview, I looked into the company further.

What is your role at MILSPRAY™?

I work on the development of new products and expanded uses of existing products to provide income for the company. 

If you could pick one theme for MILSPRAY™ to turn into a book about the company, what would it be?

Diversity, because both our people and the work we do cover a very broad range.

How has MILSPRAY™ helped you in your career development?

My work at MILSPRAY™ has allowed me to get back into the field for which I was trained.

If you could switch your job with anyone else within the company, whose job would you want?

I like where I’m at, so if I had to switch, I’d switch with Kevin C. so I would be doing pretty much the same thing and working with the same people.

What do you like most about MILSPRAY™?

I think MILSPRAY™ as a company treats employees very well.  Having been in a number of jobs throughout my life, I appreciate that more.

What have you gained from working at MILSPRAY™?

Obviously a job, but also an opportunity to live and work in a nice area.  My wife and I would never have planned to move to New Jersey, but this job brought us here and it has been a very positive development in our lives.

Seal Of New Jersey

What is on your wish list for the next 5 years with MILSPRAY™?

I hope that the company continues to grow and prosper.

What is a favorite line from any movie?

Captain Renault: What in heaven’s name brought you to Casablanca?

Rick: My health. I came to Casablanca for the waters.

Captain Renault: The waters? What waters? We’re in the desert.

Rick: I was misinformed.

Casablanca

Are you messy or organized?

I lean toward the messy side, but not in the extreme.

What is the best vacation you’ve been to?

Prince Edward Island

Confederation Bridge

Describe what you were like at age 10.

I was a fairly normal child, although I have always been somewhat reserved.

If given a chance, who would you like to be for a day?

Innocent Veniaminov

Innocent Veniaminov

If Hollywood made a movie about your life, who would you like to see cast as you?

I would like to see me cast as me.  Otherwise, some people have said that I resemble Peter Ustinov.

If you could be anyone from any time period who would it be and why?

1. Alldos IV of the Earth colonies of Omacron Ceti III in the year 2870 AD, because it would be interesting to see what the future is like.

2. Erasmus, because it would be interesting to be a renowned scholar at that particular time in history and to be involved in the controversies of the time.

Erasmus

Team Apple or Team Droid?

My cell phone is so old I don’t know if it uses either.

You’re happiest when?

Relaxing at home.
