A Competitive Technology Project Management LinkedIn Sample

Teams sits around a desk looking at a computer.

“Instead of using LinkedIn as a passive billboard, you can use the platform to build connections with other professionals in your niche.”

– Forbes.com

A LinkedIn profile is an important professional material. All students should have a LinkedIn profile to be competitive in the job market. This profile can be used as a more complete record of skills and achievements than the resume; to network with other students; and for students to be visible to recruiters.

The Basics

As with all professional documents, ensure that your LinkedIn profile has:

  • Accurate spelling and punctuation
  • Consistent tone throughout
  • Working links

Compelling Introductory Information

  • Professional profile photo
  • Customized background image
  • Catchy headline that incorporates your target role.
