Use Your LinkedIn Profile to Attract New Opportunities To You

A 100% complete LinkedIn profile attracts those with possibilities. Job leads, sales prospects or partnership situations are looking for you.

According to LinkedIn, “users with complete profiles are 40 times more likely to receive opportunities through LinkedIn!”

Find out if your profile is 100% complete by looking on the right side of your LinkedIn “Edit Profile ” page. As you make updates, notice the change in your profile completeness score. The feature may provide you with additional profile completion tips.

Do you know which elements make your LinkedIn profile 100% complete? To reach 100% profile completeness, you should add all of the following to your profile:

  • Industry and postal code
  • A current position with description
  • Two more positions
  • Education
  • At least 3 skills
  • Profile photo
  • At least 50 connections
