Two years ago I wrote an article for Inc.com and revisited it the other day.
I made some adjustments for 2018 so hopefully a revised version will help you over the next few days as we start spring.
We all need to clear away a year’s worth of dust and dirt to make ourselves more transparent. Here are eight tips over the next few days for adding more “spring” to your LinkedIn “step.”
6. Be sure your Experience section reflects the breadth of the professional experiences, skill set and learning you bring daily to the proverbial table. Describe the key values you learned in each position, the accomplishments in each role (leaving out statistics as they do not have any context be compared to) and how you cultivated your skills. Show increasing responsibilities and seniority.
If you were one place 12 years and another place 6 years, I thin you should have at least the same amount of narrative (or probably more!) to say in the longer position than the shorter!
Define acronyms or industry jargon, where needed, since people outside your field may be reading.
Add graphics and video germane to the specific position here too.
Use complete sentences, starting with “I” and use power verbs.
