LinkedIn Profile Showdown: Can You Beat My Score?

LinkedIn Profile Showdown: Can You Beat My Score?

A couple of months ago, I wasn’t really paying attention to my LinkedIn profile.

I had applied some basic best practices, but honestly – it was pretty average. I didn’t post on there much, and I hadn’t put a lot of effort into it.

Then some changes and opportunities came up in my life, and I wanted to make sure I had a strong LinkedIn profile that really did me justice.

I wanted it to showcase my skills and experience in a way that proved my credibility and the showed the value I bring to the table…

So I started looking around at what the best people are doing on LinkedIn these days.

That’s when I came across a simple app that helped me spot the weak points in my profile – and told me how to fix them.

All I had to do was sync it with my profile, and in a few seconds I had my results.

Linkedin Profile Grader

Like I said, pretty average. Now, I’m a bit of a nerd, so 84% was unacceptable to me. Thankfully, I wasn’t left hanging.

LinkedIn App

It gave me simple, specific recommendations on how to improve my profile so I could get noticed and make sure my “personal brand” was up to par.

Since then, I’ve fixed my headline a bit, increased engagement, and built my network up… and voila:
