Embrace the awkwardness of LinkedIn

by The 100 Companies

Being active on LinkedIn can help you build a professional network and showcase your skills and experiences. Here are some of my best practices to help you get the most out of your LinkedIn experience:

• Complete a robust profile.

• Connect with colleagues, classmates and industry professionals.

• Share relevant, valuable content like articles, infographics and updates on your company and industry.

• Most importantly, share what you are doing. People are following you because they want to see you.

Embrace the awkwardness of self-promotion and leverage the events, activities and groups you participate in to show yourself off to other industry professionals.
