How to Create a LinkedIn Profile
It is very easy to create a LinkedIn profile on LinkedIn. It is just like to create a profile mon other social media network.
- First of all, you have to visit www.linkledin.com on your browser or simply download the LinkedIn app and open it on your mobile phone. the process of very easy to create a profile pon LinkedIn wither on mobile or computer.

- You need to verify your email by tapping on the link which you will find in the email.)

- After that LinkedIn asks for your job position. (If you are a student select I am a student and add your college and course details.)
- Follow your interset on LinkedIn suggested you to, you can skip it also.
By following these simple steps you can easily create a profile on LinkedIn. But don’t forget to verify your email or phone number.
However, it’s not enough to just have a LinkedIn profile. You need a great Profesional Profile.
Upload Your Profile Photo and Cover Photo
Your profile photo should have to look like a Profesional or just like a passport size photo. Always use a clear image, I recommended you to always use a photo that has a solid background. (It also depends on that in which industry do you belongs.)
Your cover photo has to just like that it tells enough to describe you to other viewers.
Write a Catchy Headline
The default setting of Linkedin.to fill the headline is your Current Position, and it’s fine. but if you want to attract the people on your profile, you should mention your specialty and other ability also.
Set a Custom URL
The default LinkedIn URL for your profile will have your name and mix of some numbers. URL is the web address of your profile and it also appears in Google and Bing searches. So you have to make it more relevant and easily memorable to anyone.
The LinkedIn URL is just like: www.linkedin.com/yourname123-25 and something, but you need a URL like www.linkedin.com/yourname (If your name is not available, I recommended that choose some character instead of choosing numbers.)
Add Your Blog or Website
If you are a blogger, you must add your Blog to your profile.
And if you are work in a company you can add your company website as a company website.
Make at Least 50 Connection
when you are new on LinkedIn the toughest thing is to make a connection. Do not worry about that just make a connection with people you know that and people who belong to your sectors and industry. (You can also use your contact and emails for finding your contacts on LinkedIn.)
Don’t Forget to Add Your Contact information
Never be forget to add the contact information. At LinkedIn, your contact information will be your email and phone number. you can also add your twitter handle and blog URL.
Add “Your Work Experience”, Projects, and Languages
How many languages do you know? I think at least 2 or 3 languages you know. Mention it on your profile. What your work experiences and have you work on any project or have you a project management certificate. Adding all these details your profile looks more attainable on LinkedIn.
Add Your Skils
This is my most favorite section on LinkedIn. Do you mention your skills in the profile? Add your all the skills you have, this helps you a lot on LinkedIn. if possible add more and more skils and never be add something like that you don’t about it or semi-known things.
You can get a quiz on your skils by LinkedIn and get a verified on, LinkedIn with your mention skils.
I hope you enjoy this post, and it’s going to very useful for you. we will meet in the nest post on LinkedIn in which I will talk about a Company page on LinkedIn, and How to create a company page on LinkedIn…….
