LinkedIn: transparency and creativity to win more clients
LinkedIn, once considered only a professional network, has now become a social platform where professionals look for clients and collaborations, but are also willing to share ideas, personal opinions and engage people in a more personal way.
This is why it can be said that LinkedIn has contributed to blur the lines between private and public and has redefined the concept of career: we are what we do.
There is not separation between your business CV and what you say or the groups you join. This is why transparency is so important when you create your LinkedIn profile.
However, and as we know, the language industry is also very competitive and we need to be visible and unique in order to be seen by the right people, or attract the right client.
Don't panic. Because LinkedIn has many options and offers us the chance to be creative and build rich and dynamic profiles. Today we will take a look at some of these important features and learn how to set up transparent, creative and effective LinkedIn profiles.
This is what we will see in one hour:
1) LinkedIn main features: profile and the social activities
