If you are trying to make a professional impression a LinkedIn profile and company page are a must in this digital age. First you have to start off by creating a personal LinkedIn profile. I would suggest using a professional email using a combination of your first and last name (maybe your middle name too if you have a common name). Once you get signed in LinkedIn is very user friendly and will make suggestions on what you should add your page.
5 things you should at least have are:
- Professional photo of yourself (by yourself)
- Summary about yourself
- Work Experience
- Education background
- Industry you are working in or are interested in working in
Once you create a personal profile on LinkedIn you can create a business page.
5 things you’ll need:
- A company email address; for example firstname.lastname@example.org
- Company logo for profile picture and a cover photo. This way you and your employee can add their position that has the company logo next to it
- Website link
- Physical Address
Keeping everyday updated, clean, and uniform is a must. LinkedIn is definitely a plus to have for any company, it makes your brand more authentic!
