LinkedIn to Members: Improve Your Profile

By David Cohen Comment

Extreme Makeover: LinkedIn Profile is now possible thanks to the professional networking site’s new Improve Your Profile tool, to go along with a redesigned profile page.

Improve Your Profile includes a checklist for LinkedIn users to optimize their profile pages, and it is customized for every user.

The new profile page design makes it easier for LinkedIn members to share their profiles and export them as .PDF files.

Product manager Aaron Bronzan wrote on the LinkedIn Blog:

Think of it as a virtual profile adviser — just for you. The Improve Your Profile tool analyzes your profile and offers you personalized profile recommendations to help you put your best foot forward. Click on the Improve Your Profile button on your Edit Profile page to get started.

We have included a handy checklist guide on the right side of the tool that highlights your recommended steps. In the left column, we guide you through the steps with simple questions.

The tool is customized for every member. Also, it is constantly being updated, so if we introduce new profile sections like we recently did, you will find them as steps within this tool.

In addition to the Improve Your Profile tool, we have recently refreshed the visual display of our profile page. The more modern design enhances the overview section and makes it easier to share profiles and to export them via PDF and printable formats. We are always looking into innovative ways to enhance the profile experience and look forward to bringing you new ways to maximize and build your professional identity.
