LinkedIn profile spring cleaning suggestions, part 12 of 15

This is part 12 of 15, expanding on my earlier plog.

This one is short and to-the-point.

You must review all sections for errors in grammar, format, syntax, and (eek!) typos; a mistake is typoall they will notice to the exclusion of the rest of your profile and potentially dismiss you as careless. Don’t only rely on spell check.

We get too close to what we write, especially about ourselves. I had a coaching client who forgot to put his advanced degree on his profile (and he’s a very accomplished professional!)

Have an objective party read your profile, not only for typos, but critically review it for ways to improve it and tell better WHY YOU.
