awesomeYou get very little time to make an impression these days. You probably already read in this blog how I make the analogy between a newspaper on a newsstand and your LinkedIn profile.

“Extra extra read all about it!”

Like a newsboy hawking papers, your LinkedIn profile headline must convey immediate visceral interest.

The headshot must be engaging and professionally friendly.

The first paragraph of the Summary must make the casual attention-deprived reader want to read more. The rest is up to your reader’s intent. Work on your profle top to bottom; polish and shine.

Otherwise, the reader is no longer interested. In a nanosecond, an opportunity can be lost, never to return to you.

Make the reader want to enter your professional world. The possibilities are immeasurable.

Really, isn’t your past, present and future career more interesting than your LinkedIn profile comes across right now?
