How I Landed my Dream Job in Two Weeks on LinkedIn: #MyLinkedInStory and Tips!

For years, I have sung the praises of LinkedIn to skeptical colleagues, friends, and family members. I've feuded with naysayers about the power of posts and building an online squad of rock star professionals that want to see you succeed. 

I've shared my profile analytics, tagging people in updates and group conversations that they were sure to find so fascinating that they too transformed into LinkedIn fan girl/fan boys!

So I tagged, and shared, and endorsed my heart out, but there are still those that haven't realized the power of community.

John C. Maxwell once said, "A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.". 15 days ago, I posted that I would be looking for a full time opportunity, and that this time, I would be doing it completely through LinkedIn, by posting new social media and content marketing content, connecting with recruiters, and scouring for any career opportunities that would post up in my news feed.

After landing my dream job in just two weeks, entirely through the power of LinkedIn, here are my top five tips for getting the most out of your LinkedIn experience!  

1. Accept invitations from connections you haven't met yet. 

Imagine showing up at a networking event and only talking to the people in the room that you already know. It's important to maintain relationships with those currently in our network, but let's  start thinking a bit more outside the box. Are you limiting yourself by being so exclusive? Active LinkedIn users are constantly sharing success stories, lessons, and great curated content that could be helping you in your career. Be open to new relationships. 

 

2. Optimize Your Profile. 

If your profile is not complete, set aside time to complete it in full. Mark it in your calendar, seriously. Having an optimized profile that people can find is key in making the most out of your time on LinkedIn. Here are a few pointers for making it look its best: 

  • Stop using symbols and/or words like "ninja", "rockstar", and "maverick" in your job title. Save your personality for your summary but make sure that your title and name are optimized for search. Recruiters generally are not looking for "Maverick hackers with awesomesauce ninja skills". 
  • Your profile is not an online resume, it is the story of your career. Don't just list the positions you've held, describe your role within the organization and share videos, documents, links, and more to demonstrate the importance of each role. Think of your LinkedIn profile as your career museum, and show off those digital artifacts! 
  • Treat your summary like gold. Often, users won't scroll past that summary, so this is where your focus needs to be. Check out your profile right now. What impression are you giving off? Your summary should be a description of who you are and what you do. It should capture your personality and how it fits within your career goals. Update it regularly! 
  • Invest in an appropriate headshot. Your profile photo should be warm, friendly, high resolution, and appropriate. If your photo includes a keg stand, a tropical beach, and bathroom mirror, and/or no shirt, it's time to swap it out for something more grown up. 

 

3. Ask for Recommendations. 

If you want to improve your LinkedIn experience, make asking for recommendations a new habit. I love writing recommendations for wonderful co-workers, and nothing makes me happier than logging in and seeing positive sentiments from my colleagues. 

With the new LinkedIn app, recommendations take up a huge chunk of real estate, making them even more important!

 

4. Get Inspired. 

You likely know about LinkedIn groups that you can join to get advice, tips, and tricks from others within your industry, but did you know that you can also follow industry leaders for inspiration? The influencers on LinkedIn range from Architects and Astronauts, to Entrepreneurs and Entertainers. Reading a fascinating new book? Search for them on LinkedIn and start enriching your news feed! 

 

5. Learn the Difference Between Updates and Posts. 

This last tip is one that took me a long time to figure out, but was a game changer. Right now I am writing a post to share on LinkedIn, but after it is published, I will share the link in an update. 

Posts should be reserved for your very best content. This could include lessons you've learned, important career milestones, book reviews, commentary on current events, or advice pieces like the one you're reading. Whatever the topic, your post should always provide value to your connections, because they are all going to be notified when it is published. 

Updates are more casual. You can share company updates, ideas, news, and curate interesting content. When curating content, my advice is to show relevance, explain in your update why you are sharing the article, video, or photo. Give your connections context and consistency so that they know who you are and what to expect from connecting with you! 

This is #mylinkedinstory, share yours with me!
