LinkedIn Profile is Like a Resume, But Not
The LI Profile must be different than the resume, or what's the point? The message or "brand" should be consistent, but you are typically reaching a different audience...or at least the same audience in a different mindset...when they are reviewing an online profile. As a Certified Online Professional Networking Strategist (OPNS) specializing in LinkedIn Profile development and optimization for job seekers in the IT and technical fields (www.ittechexec.com), I have found that the summary section is the best place to "state your case" to the reader. The experience section is best presented very briefly...only highlighting key achievements. Having a solid profile is important, as more than 50% of recruiters are now using LinkedIn as a primary channel for sourcing job candidates.
