- Complete your profile: It is very necessary for you to update your profile. Make it in such a way that it should attract people's attention. Clear it from unwanted information. I am an open networker. I accept most of the request on linkedin. Reason: I believe in philosophy that every human being is a resource and an assets some or other way. Networking is the best way to stay in touch with them. It is good to help each other and to grow with each other. A resources may not be utilised this time but somewhere in the future. But, this also means not that I accept all the request. I do not accept incomplete profile. Few common mistakes are, people hide their organisation's name, they do not write their designation, they do not mention contact numbers, they do not update about their past organisation and assignment. A complete profile attracts more viewer for your profile than an incomplete profile. Regularly update it.
- Engage, engage and engage: Only becoming member and networker is not sufficient. You need to participate and engage yourself in various activities. Everyday, at least half an hour keep aside for engaging yourself in linkedin. You should spend time in reading blogs and articles, reading what other people have posted and commented, check profile of the people from similar profile, function and verticals, clicking and sharing on job posted on linkedin, applying on job posted in linkedin.
