If you’ve never been on LinkedIn before, it can be a little overwhelming. That’s why we created a 5-Step Quick Guide for getting started on LinkedIn – Take a look:

Step 1: Update Your Resume

The first step is to make sure your actual resume is updated. Once you’ve done that, then you can transfer the data to your LinkedIn Profile.

If you need further help with your resume, consider looking into a professional resume writer.

Step 2: Change Your Privacy Settings

Your resume is done – great! Now, it’s time to start adding information to your LinkedIn Profile. Before you add anything, make sure you change your Privacy Settings so your profile activity isn’t visible until you’re done filling out your profile. You don’t want your connections seeing every single change you make to your profile!

Need help with this? Visit LinkedIn Help for more information.

Step 3: Add Your Information

Once you’ve adjusted your Privacy Settings, you can start adding content to your Profile. In addition to adding your resume, you can showcase visual accomplishments like PDFs, online articles, and images. To learn how to do this, check out this LinkedIn Lab clip.

Warning: No information on your profile is suspect, but too much is overkill. Do your best to balance it out and include the must-haves.

Step 4: Optimize Your Profile

After you’ve added your information to your profile, you must go through an optimize it so it’s easier for people (and employers) to find and read.

We suggest checking out our FREE tutorial, “5 Things Recruiters Expect To See On Your Profile” for help doing this. If you use tools like this, you can go through and optimize every section of your profile.

Step 5: Make It Part Of Your Routine

After optimizing your profile, you just need to keep it fresh. The more you participate on LinkedIn, the more it rewards you. It puts you in searches, finds relevant people to connect with you, and so on. So, you should make sure you’re an active user on a regular basis.

Make an effort to update your information monthly. You should also be active on a daily basis by sharing articles, participating in groups, and keeping up with your connections.
