If you have a website or blog, use the “other” category and name your site when you add the URL. Also, you can edit your LinkedIn URL in your profile to include your name.
Ask colleagues and clients to “recommend” you on LinkedIn. They can say all of the flowery, fabulous things about you that you can’t say about yourself! Only ask those who you know will write a quality review. Most people will discount a poorly written recommendation.
Especially when you are job hunting, your LinkedIn profile may be your golden ticket. Make sure you keep it shiny!
