Use SlideShare in your LinkedIn Profile When You Are Looking for a New Job

I have already shared many tips in the past about an attractive LinkedIn Profile (see for example the post about new features for your LinkedIn Profile) and the use of Applications in your LinkedIn Profile (for example how to use video in your LinkedIn Profile).

Last week I had a call with Laurence Bret, the new marketing director EMEA at LinkedIn.

Of course I prepared for the meeting (as you should do, whether you are looking for a new job or not, see also my blog post why an attractive LinkedIn Profile is needed for Hiring Managers) and I was impressed with the SlideShare presentation Laurence put on her LinkedIn Profile to present herself, titled “Meet Laurence”.

I advice everybody to have a good look at it and learn from it.

Yes, it is more work, but you will also stand out from the crowd.

Remember the saying “there is no traffic jam on the extra mile”. So go ahead, go the extra mile and update your LinkedIn Profile with a stunning SlideShare presentation !

To your success !
