Did you know you can customize your LinkedIn profile URL? Every LinkedIn member can create a easily recognizable link directly to their profile in LinkedIn.
When you create a profile in LinkedIn, the system automatically generates a link to your profile. By default, this is a meaningless string of numbers and / or letters. I recommend Linkedin members edit this field and creating a custom URL for their profile.
My custom profile URL is http://www.linkedin.com/in/aprilmwilliams. Clicking on this link will take you directly to my profile page in LinkedIn.
Click on my custom URL http://www.linkedin.com/in/aprilmwilliams and connect with me on LinkedIn.
Members can customizable the last part of their URL or the segment after “in”.
Each LinkedIn member profile is unique. If you have a common name, you may have to be creative in your selection. Consider these options:
- <FirstName LastName>
- <FirstName Middle Name LastName>
- <FirstName Middle Initial LastName>
- Tag line: i.e., WorldsBestLawyer
Add your newly customized LinkedIn profile URL to your email signature and include it in your resume.
