room shotUsing LinkedIn as a digital resume gives you access to the world's largest profession network, with over 380 million registered LinkedIn members.  Lianne lead an exercise to help members develop a professional headline; some participants then shared their headline with the group, and received feedback to make further improvements.
Next, the group focused on development of the summary using keywords; an area to emphasize keywords that are specific to your industry.  This is where including keywords such as FMEA, PPAP, Six Sigma, continuous improvement, 5S, and others, if applicable, will improve your ranking when a recruiter is performing a LinkedIn search.
Other tips included:

  • Personalizing your url to improve search engine results;
  • requesting recommendations from former employers / professors;
  • characteristics of an appropriate headshot photo;
  • How to control your "broadcast" settings;
  • Promoting your personal brand
