What your LinkedIn profile says about you


You've been a job seeker for a long time, and you're starting to feel desperate. What can you do to get more attention and land more interviews? If your LinkedIn profile is anything like most job seekers, it doesn't say much about your personality. However, once you fill it out correctly and add the correct details, your profile will say many positive things about you, which could help differentiate you from other candidates. Here's what your LinkedIn profile says (or should say) about you.

You are busy

If you’ve got a lot going on in your life, your LinkedIn profile will show it. Not only is it essential to list every significant accomplishment, but it also includes any relevant experience that doesn’t fit into the traditional profile format. For example, if you are a DJ and have played at local events or bars, ensure that information is also included in your profile. This will help future employers know more about whom they are hiring and what they can expect.

You are passionate about your field

  • You are not just doing it for the money.

  • You have a genuine interest and enthusiasm for your field and genuinely enjoy it.

  • You are a real expert in your field and know more about it than most people do.

  • You are a specialist in your field, meaning you have focused on one particular aspect of what may be considered a broader topic (for example, if I were an accountant specialising in tax preparation).

  • Your knowledge is extensive enough to teach others about this field, even if they don't work directly with you or for the same organization as yourself (for example, if I were teaching accounting classes at a local community college).

You are confident in your abilities

If your LinkedIn profile is consistent with the rest of your social media profiles, it will likely show that you are confident in your abilities.

You know what you are good at and are willing to learn new skills. You also have a positive attitude and are willing to work hard to achieve your goals. You're not afraid of taking risks or taking responsibility for the outcomes of those risks—and this shows through on all of your social media profiles.

You invest in yourself

Investing in yourself is the best investment you can make.

Investing in yourself is the best way to ensure that you remain relevant and employable. It’s not enough to just have a degree; everyone has degrees and other credentials, so what sets you apart? The answer is an investment in self-development.

We live in an era where technology has changed everything about how we work—from how we communicate to how we get paid, from how we find jobs to even how our bodies move at work (we now sit more than ever). As a result, it’s more important than ever before that professionals stay up-to-date on developments in their industry, so they don't fall behind on trends or miss out on opportunities for advancement.

You make the most of Modern Technology

If you're using LinkedIn to its full potential, you've taken the time to fill out your profile and include all the details that will help other people find you. The more information you have on hand in your profile, the more likely people will be able to connect with you. A well-fleshed-out profile also shows others that you are serious about your business and career, which can make a big difference when trying to connect with new clients, customers, or even friends. If someone sees a long list of recommendations from past co-workers and peers on your page, they'll be more inclined to trust what else is about yourself

A LinkedIn profile should be seen as an extension of yourself and how others perceive whom they are dealing with if they decide to work with someone professionally.

You communicate well

Your LinkedIn profile should communicate that you're a good communicator.

  • You communicate well with your peers.

  • You communicate well with your boss.

  • You communicate well with your customers.

  • You communicate well with your clients, who are often also customers but not always.

  • You communicate well with the people at work who do not report to you, but you still interact regularly (your team members, for example).

You go out and make things happen

You are proactive and take charge of situations. You are a great communicator to the team, and your writing skills. You have excellent leadership skills and can motivate others to work towards a goal. Your problem-solving abilities are top-notch, as well as your listening skills, planning skills, and attention to detail.

You don't need anyone's permission before you start making things happen!

If your profile is filled out correctly, it will say many positive things about you!

Your profile is a window into your personality. How you present yourself here will say many positive things about you, whether it's intentional or not!

If your profile is correctly filled out, it will say:

  • You are busy. If you're spending time on LinkedIn, it means that you have a fulfilling career and/or life outside of work. It also says that this is a priority for you regarding online activities, which are likely to be more passive than active (reading articles or news versus making social network posts). Your profile says: "I'm confident enough in my abilities that I can afford to invest time in something as self-promotional as this." It's saying: "I care about myself."

  • You are passionate about your field (and probably make an excellent employee). The fact that someone has taken the time to create their own personal brand and then advertise themselves on LinkedIn shows how much they value themselves professionally and personally. Your profile could say: "I am driven" or even "I am successful" based on how well-written and visually appealing the page is! Remember—the overall quality of content matters just as much as its appearance; don't let anyone tell otherwise!

  • You are confident in your abilities (and probably make an excellent employee). By filling out this section of their website with several relevant projects done during their career path thus far (or even further back), users demonstrate that they have natural talent worth showcasing through examples rather than empty promises like most job seekers do during interviews where everything sounds great but nothing happens afterwards...leaving employers both confused by what happened there or discouraged by having wasted their own valuable time interviewing someone who didn't measure up--all because these applicants were afraid to show off just how awesome they were from day one instead of waiting until later down.


LinkedIn is a powerful platform for connecting with new and existing contacts. It is also a valuable resource for job seekers and employers alike.

LinkedIn can be used by job seekers as an effective tool in their search for employment opportunities. They can search for companies that may have posted open positions within their industry or location preference. They also have access to information regarding salary ranges based on each company's location as well as average employee tenure at each company listed on the site.

This information can help job seekers make better decisions about companies they apply to while searching for employment opportunities.
