You’re on LinkedIn. You’ve optimized your profile, but there’s a few other things you should—or should not—do. Hiring managers might find it suspicious if you have no recommendations on LinkedIn. Though it might be tempting, LinkedIn should not be used to flirt with someone you find attractive and would like to get to know. It’s easy to assume a job title will suffice for your job description, but not always. Either listing job titles with the description in the summary, or describing each job as if it were a resume is fine. Posting a picture of yourself and listing some hobbies in the “stuff” section helps provide some personality to your profile. Anyone you’re linked to will get an alert when you drastically change your profile. Be subtle and strategic when you work on your profile.
