Your profile contains all the information you want to share with other members of your network. Remember that when you view your profile, you can see all interactions with your network, including your private content, but other members viewing your profile can only see your private content if you have shared it directly with them.
Here are some Tips and Tricks for your Profile.
Complete your Resume
Distinguish yourself from other members of your network by completing your Resume. Your portfolio can include information about your expertise or skills, and projects or teams that you've worked on. All of this information can help promote you. The more complete your resume is, the more likely you will be asked to join teams and evaluate work and content on your network.
Use the Skill Map to Connect with Other Members with the Same Skills and Interests
Use the Skill Map within your profile to see how your skills connect you with other members of your network.
The screenshot below shows a Skill Map filtered for network members whose skills include Java programming. Using Skill Map is a great way to discover talent across your network.
Promote and Market Yourself
Treat your profile like any other content on your network. If you want more exposure, share it. Sharing your profile to a Space or network-wide can help give yourself more visibility.
To share a profile, including your own, click Share and choose where you want to share it.
Promote your Work
Although your Profile contains all the content that you've created on your network, you can promote specific content to help it gain more traction. Here's how:
- On your Profile page, click the Portfolio tab, then click the Pen icon.
- Click the Heart icon on the bottom right of the content you want to promote.
- Click Save.
Now, whenever users view your profile, your promoted content will appear at the top of the list.
Ask for a Review
One way to record your achievements at work is to ask team members to write a review after the successful execution of an Idea or Project. Reviews help validate your contributions to your network. Remember to pay in kind and write reviews for others when asked. All your reviews are found within the Review tab on your Profile page.
