If you are in a profession / career that doesn't peer pressure you into creating a LinkedIn profile, be thankful! I've grown to accept it only as a place to allow coworkers to keep professional contacts current, and provide a smokescreen away from places such as The List App (where my true personality is on display).
  1. 1.
    Post updates after dark announcing your interest in filling openings.
  2. 2.
    Provide details of your "job" performance.
  3. 3.
    Endorse others for "Brand Penetration"
  4. 4.
    Congratulate someone for their new position.
  5. 5.
    Add important letters after your name or title to detail intent, such as: MBA, PHD, DTF.
  6. 6.
    Message someone saying, "according to the data I see, I'm trending up"
  7. 7.
    Spark her fiscal sense by requesting a cost analysis of something by asking "is it worth it?"
  8. 8.
    Inquire if her company is hiring by saying "can I work it?"
  9. 9.
    It's important to highlight your skill flexibility, that as roles change you can adapt and succeed. Tell her that you can "Put my thing down, flip it and reverse it."
  10. 10.
    After a hot discussion of supply and demand with increasing economies of scale, don't say "was it good for you too?" The proper thing to say is "Next steps?"
