LinkedIn Checklist

Use this checklist for auditing your personal LinkedIn profile. Also, use this time to ensure all of the information is up to date.

  • Do you have a professional profile photo?
  • Is your headline detailed and professional?
  • Does your summary include details and rich keywords?
  • Is your contact information available (be careful here as you don’t want to encourage spam)?
  • Does your Public Profile URL include your name?
  • Do you have details about at least your past three positions?
  • Have you include information about your education, your organizations, charities, awards, and other highlights?
  • Do you ask for recommendations and endorsements?
  • Have you asked to be introduced to other professionals?
  • Have you joined at least six LinkedIn organizations, and are you active in them?
  • Do you follow companies that may be future employers?
  • Do you follow companies that you currently do business with or would like to do business with?
  • Is your profile connected to other websites?
  • Are you updating your status regularly?
  • Are you sharing content on LinkedIn that your network can take advantage of?
  • Are you commenting on the updates from others in your network? Hint: Don’t just be a “liker” but instead make relevant comments.
  • Are you continuously reaching out to your network on significant changes to their life?
  • Are you asking 20-30 people a week to join your network on LinkedIn? Hint: do more than say that you saw their profile on LinkedIn.
