Complete Your Profile
Did you know that 49% of LinkedIn users have incomplete profiles? The site’s algorithm searches and displays results by criteria with profile completeness as the top priority. You already have an advantage over almost half of LinkedIn users by just having a 100% completed profile.
Optimize Your Images
Spruce up your LinkedIn profile by adding interesting and relevant images. To make them display properly on most screens, your profile picture should be 400×400 pixels, while your background image 1400×425. You can also add a standard logo (100×60), career page photo (970×240), banner image (646×220), and square logo (150×50).
