If your profile starts with “I am a hard-working, responsible professional with XY years of experience in ……… (add your field). Team player, able to work independently and capable to work in fast paced environment.” you really may need to read this. 

When recruiters, employers and clients are looking at your profile, they want to see, feel and experience that you’re worth investing their time, energy and resources in YOU! 

That decision takes a few minutes (and for some people a few seconds).

A few seconds which impact your future and whether you get that call you’ve been waiting for ages:

“We found your profile on LinkedIn and think you may like this opportunity. “

LinkedIn is your platform right now if you are looking at what’s next in your career. An attractive LinkedIn profile is your key to unlock your dream job opportunities.

Creating an attractive LinkedIn profile isn’t just a trendy thing to do right now.

From the poll in my private FB group for committed and ambitious employees, I discovered that LinkedIn is a hot topic these days.

But some employees, managers and freelancers are really struggling with “HOW” to create an attractive LinkedIn profile and use it up to the potential it offers.  

They were asking me questions like: 

‼️ Is a CV not enough to attract the right opportunities? 

‼️ What shall I include in my Headline and in my LinkedIn profile?  There is so much advice on the internet, I am confused and overwhelmed.

‼️ I don’t feel comfortable to blow my own trumpet! How do I break through my fears of visibility and judgment?  

‼️ How do I make my profile stand out and different from people who work in the same industry?  

‼️ How to show in my profile that I have more than one career direction (passions)? 

‼️ How can I attract better job opportunities when I don’t know anyone? 

If you are asking the same questions, I have an invitation for you.

Stop asking and wondering.

Start with re-designing your LinkedIn profile.

This doesn’t mean that you will just blindly update your skills and achievements.  

This is what you may be tempted to do at first, however let me show you a different way. 

Unless you bring into your LinkedIn profile the REAL FLAVOUR of Who you are, What you stand for and How you support your employer and clients, your profile will be just like hundreds of other profiles that people browse through and move on from.

While I am not a LinkedIn Expert, I supported my clients to build LinkedIn profile that is a real reflection of their career potential. It helped them to boost their visibility organically.  

What’s the secret?  

Well, there is no secret.  

This process just involves something different from updating your skills, qualifications and responsibilities. 

I will be sharing about these techniques in my upcoming FREE online training, however today I would like to give you a short overview.

Simple steps you can take to improve your LinkedIn profile and attract better opportunities.

Here we go:

💎 Avoid using common words like hard-working, motivated … they don’t make you stand out.
💎 Bring more flavour into your online presence – tell people what you love doing and why.
💎 Give an authentic image of who you are – don’t pretend or claim results that aren’t true. 
💎 Celebrate your past working history and achievements – own your success.
💎 Be clear how you add value to your employer and clients. Tell them what you help them gain, achieve,  make and save. 
💎 Give commitment that you do your best to deliver your service (yes, being employed means you deliver service) through sharing testimonials or showcasing your work. 
💎  Apart from skills, experience and education include aspects important for your professional growth – your values, your motivations, your passions, your contribution and purpose.  
💎 Build trust by showing up consistently.  Use your profile to engage with people and build professional relationships. Acknowledge their work, opinions and services by commenting.

Adriana, that sounds easy, obvious and straight forward but what’s the real challenge here? 

Well, let me share 3 biggest problems my clients faced in this process: 

  • Their fear of visibility and judgment was keeping them stuck and playing small.
  • They read through so many articles and tips on LinkedIn profiles that they ended up confused what and where they should include.
  • They didn’t know how to make their profile stand out and instead re-created a profile that was still just like hundreds of others using the common words “I’m a hard-working, reliable professional, great team player, … “ 

If this is also what you’re struggling with right now, I invite you to check out this video about my upcoming training.  

In this training I will support employees, managers and freelancers to create and re-design their profile through simple step-by-step process.
