What makes a good LinkedIn profile that will attract recruiters?

Good question.  Let’s break it down:

  1. Great professional head and shoulders photo.  No pets or pictures of sunsets.  The pets are unprofessional. The setting sun sends the wrong message.
  2. An “About” section that highlights your skills, experience, and successes. Write it to show prospective employers how you can benefit their organization.
  3. A snappy, descriptive headline regarding who you are.  No titles or lame expressions like “seasoned executive.”  That screams, “I am old.”
  4. A copy of your resume.  Emphasize your experience, your skills, and successes
  5. Mini-case studies that describe a specific challenge, your strategy, and then detail the success.  Be brief.
  6. A one-minute introductory video for recruiters and prospective employers.  This can be powerful, but the quality of the product is important.
