How Can My Profile Stand Out on LinkedIn?

LinkedIn is a professional social network site that allows users to connect with potential employers. Some employers even add job postings to their own profiles, inviting other LinkedIn users to apply.

Everyone on LinkedIn has the same space for their work history, educational background, skills and photo to work with, so it can sometimes feel hard to distinguish yourself from the sea of other faces. However, that doesn’t mean you have to settle for blending in and hoping an employer arbitrarily decides to take an interest in you. There are real steps you can take to separate yourself from the pack and find the opportunities you want — if you put work into your profile.
