Skills to consider placing on your #LinkedIn profile

skill searchIncreasingly skills are important aspects for the LinkedIn search function and for you to carefully self-describe your value proposition to readers of your profile, hiring managers and recruiters included.

Some specific skills are highly sought by employers, depending on your field of work. LinkedIn has aggregated some of these in an article and for whom they are advantageous.

Consider using some of these on your profile, BUT be sure you are being honest with yourself: do you truly possess and perform the skills you list?

Ahem, “management” and “finance” are not skills, folks, they are thick volumes on a book shelf from a 101 course.

Please be realistic and more self-descriptive in listing your skills. You don’t know who is looking for you and why.
