Social media is considered to be one of the most influential inventions of this century. Platforms like LinkedIn are dedicated for professionals to build networks beyond the purpose of socializing. SkillQuo empowers its users to integrate their LinkedIn profiles into the respective accounts.
Your LinkedIn profile will be seamlessly integrated into the SkillQuo platform, so that you can showcase your most comprehensive professional profile. In this case, building a professional LinkedIn profile is exceptionally important as it works as a highly effective branding tool for you.
However, if you need your LinkedIn profile to deliver the best in SkillQuo, we encourage you to incorporate the following:
- Your profile picture
As a top tier Skill Quo member, your profile photo should reflect the caliber of your professionalism. We recommend that you keep busy backgrounds at bay, in favor of a simple clean head shot.
- Compose a pithy headline Your profile may not be a complete one without a pithy headline. It should be short and clear; mention your title (finance, private equity, programming, designing etc.) followed with the word consultant, specialist, expert or even freelancer accordingly.
- Create a stellar profile summary You need to have a wow-piece as the summary. This should clearly emphasize your passion for your subject area and the reasons for you to select the respective field. In fact, you should consider this summary as the ‘About’ section. Make sure that your profile summary attracts your customers and portray your confidence to the public.
- Build your portfolio We recommend text and multimedia images. We encourage the use of visuals to display in your portfolio. These images should be powerful enough to distinguish yourself from the rest. It can be photos, reports, presentations, video clips, screenshots, PDF or anything else that can convince the clients.
- Let clients know your history Remember, your LinkedIn profile works as a resume for you; so mention the jobs that are particularly relevant and capable of portraying your specific skills. After all, your LinkedIn profile works as your resume that brands you. LinkedIn integration is vital since SkillQuo requires genuineness and professionalism from all the users. It is a proven fact that users that have integrated their LinkedIn profiles enjoy a higher success rate than the others.
