When making a LinkedIn page, you should take the opportunity to add something new that differs from your CV. Here you show some personal flair and your career passions and goals.
If you are a skilled writer, you may want to try your hand at writing a few blogs to accompany your profile. This is a fantastic way to show your insight and interest in current industry trends.
Until next time, happy job hunting!
