Breaking Down the Anatomy of a Successful LinkedIn Profile [Infographic]

A polished, professional LinkedIn profile is almost as important as your resume. Users need a unique URL and a compelling headline to show up in searches and invite profile views. And if you want people to contact you, make sure you include up-to-date contact information.

Without a great profile, however, contact information and a good headline won’t do much good. Write your summary using keywords and share your 'Unique Selling Proposition'. There’s a 2,000-character limit in your summary, so make it count. Then build your profile with quantifiable accomplishments and plenty of visuals by uploading projects.

Create a visual profile with great photos - a profile with a headshot is 11X more likely to be viewed. And end on a positive note by listing your volunteer work and sharing what’s important to you.

No matter what your chosen career is, you’ll benefit from having a LinkedIn profile that truly showcases who you are as a professional.

The Infographic below has more details on how to shine on LinkedIn.
