They sell these carved wooden bears in Vermont. One contradicts the other, sending a strong signal.

So it is with LinkedIn.

One strongly written experience juxtaposed among others with less impact sends a mixed signal.

One skill with a lot of endorsements alongside the skill we seek in you with a few endorsements also muddies the waters.

One lame recommendation among others with more enthusiasm is like a stain on your shirt: the reader will only see the imperfection.

Repetition, typos, poor grammar, immature syntax, and mismatched formats discredit a professional whose work is predicated on being detail-oriented.

See your profile as a unified whole. Take time and make it reflect well on the professional you really are.

Happy Labor Day weekend. See you back here on Tuesday.
