So you are on LinkedIn. You’ve crafted a well-written summary; found a professional profile picture, and added your employment and education history. You’ve scrolled through the list of “People you may know,” sent personalized connection requests, followed companies and joined groups. And now you want to know. . .
Or, more specifically, what can you share on LinkedIn that is not boring or too personal. The good news – you may be surprised to find you have more to share than you think. Here are a few examples from people in my network that will, hopefully, provide you with inspiration for your own updates:
Share your work (from Gretchen Rubin)
Share articles of interest, even if you didn’t write them (from Gretchen Rubin)
Share an event (from Frank Gruber)
Share a job opening (from Jessica Collins)
Share your company news – with a personal twist (from my profile)
Share your semi-personal, but still business-related thoughts (from my profile)
You have a full and busy professional life – don’t be afraid to share it!
