Tips on Using LinkedIn


Boston Globe’s Scott Kirsner wrote a very useful article, “Make better introductions: LinkedIn can be a valuable networking tool – but are you maximizing its potential?” on using LinkedIn.

  • Spell your name wrong. That’s important if you have a name, like mine, that’s often misspelled. By including the commonly misspelled variation in your profile, you can help people find you.
  • Write a compelling headline.
  • List everything. Because it enables more people to be able to link to you.
