If you have been using LinkedIn for a long time, you know how important it is to stand out among all others in your field. The first step towards that is your profile. Your LinkedIn profile gives your introduction. It tells the employer exactly who you are and what you do. And as we all know, the first impression is the last impression. Therefore, you should consider building up your profile. In this article, we will go deep into the dos and don’ts of building an updated introduction section. I hope you are ready to take the dive.

Editing the introduction section

The introduction section is the highest section on your profile. It provides an initial glimpse of your persona, work, and capabilities. You can easily use it to your advantage and improve your chances of getting successful employment and a better network. A poorly maintained and old introduction section can look extremely unimpressive. It can give your impression of being uninterested in working. So, it is really important to update the introduction section to power up your profile. To update your current position, all you need to do is edit the introduction section in your profile, and in the current position section, click on the ‘add new position option.’ Also, add your experience related to that position. Your newly created current position will now be displayed in your introduction section.

Update and add new experiences

The introduction section summarizes your personality and accomplishments. In that case, it is important that you add to it by providing any new experiences that you have gained recently. This will not only attract the attention of companies but also open doors to new employers. You may be working as an experienced teacher, but your newly gained experience in social media trends can get you a dream job at a renowned social media firm!

Jobs on LinkedIn are posted regularly. So, there is no ‘right time’ to add new updates to your profile, and every moment is a great opportunity. Updating new experiences on your profile helps you to maintain a strong brand. It opens up new opportunities for you, and you never know when you land your dream place. Also, with changing platform algorithms, it is important to change with it and adapt to the new policies to stay relevant. Many people ignore the importance of regularly updating their profile. In order to stay on top, this one thing should never skip your mind.
