There’s a lot happening on LinkedIn, and if you are just getting started, it can be slightly overwhelming. That’s why here at CCG we have put together a LinkedIn Profile checklist to help you get started on the right track. The truth is, your dream career is probably waiting for you on LinkedIn and there are so many opportunities people aren’t taking advantage of because they just don’t know how.
Here is our 16-Point Checklist for your LinkedIn Profile:
