Your career is on the line on your #LinkedIn profile

I am a great example of a career hopper. Banker, corporate finance, entrepreneur, coach and trainer. Who knows what’s next?

Read Reid Hoffman’s book “The Start-Up of You” for more on how this is totally acceptable today and what to do to show yourself in the best light.

It really lays out what we all need to be conversant on: self-branding, interviewing, skills and street creds.

You must encapsulate all parts of this diagram: tell the the sum total of who you are, and express why you do what you do.

Does your LinkedIn profile tell your story?
