Your profile page and employer’s job application page, which maintains a LinkedIn website, are two areas of LinkedIn where you can upload your resume. According to LinkedIn, more than three million enterprises maintain a LinkedIn company page, and the number of registered users exceeds 300 million, which makes the website an effective platform for finding work and establishing contacts with your colleagues. When you upload your resume via the Job Application page, the website attaches your resume to an application for an available position. However, when you upload it through a profile page, the website retrieves the relevant information from your resume to fill out your LinkedIn profile.
Your profile, as opposed to what many users think, is not the online equivalent of a resume. Although it looks like this, it’s more than a summary. Your LinkedIn profile allows you to showcase your story, ambitions, and personal brand, bypassing the limitations of a typical resume. It also serves as a business card by which other users decide whether to add you to their professional network.
This guide will show you how to configure LinkedIn to get more views and build a strong network for a career or business. We will also share some tips for creating a better LinkedIn profile.
