LinkedIn Tips

I need to do a min-rant about LinkedIn.

It seems that everyone on LinkedIn is ready to give you a tip on how to better your experience. And this includes me as I have absolutely given my input on good practices to include on LinkedIn. But have you ever considered the “where” or “why” the tip was suggested?

Not every “tip” is going to be right for you. It is common sense people. Just because someone makes a suggestion does not mean YOU have to do it. Pick and choose what you are comfortable attempting or incorporating into your profile or usage of the site. There are many tips that are fantastic but are not right for me, for whatever reason. Some tips will make sense for you and others are going to make you scratch your head and wonder why you would do this. Be selective but follow-through to maximize the impact.

And that is one more LinkedIn tip for you.
