Mix Things Up

When I first added a blog to my profile I was pretty disappointed that it was at the bottom of the “pile”.  LinkedIn seems to put whatever you added last at the bottom of your profile.  I noticed some other folks had profiles in different places.  I have been wondering did they decide on an order before they added things to their profile?  Was I going to have to delete everything and add it back in the order I wanted?  Seemed ridiculous.  Tonight I figured it out.  Like many things on LinkedIn it would probably be simple if I were 15 years old.  So here is what you do to move your blog or anything else to another position in your profile. 

On the “Profile” Tab click “Edit Profile”.  Each section of the profile is labeled for example where your blog is you will notice in this view about the blog it says “Applications” and there is a thin faint line that runs across the profile page.  Put the cursor just above the line and you will see it turn to a blue sort of highlighted section.  The cursor will change to look like + right click and hold the cursor.  Now you can drag that section up or down to the new place you want it.   I didn’t try it on every section but I believe you can move most sections around, so rearrange them in an order that puts the ones that are most important to the viewers of your profile at the top of the page.

 If you believe this tip or any tips in this blog will contribute to the success of your LinkedIn experience, I hope you will give me just a few minutes of your time to help with my success and share my LinkedIn profile with some of your connections.  Please read the “If My Tips Help You, Please Help Me” section of the blog to find out how to help me.  You will find this section next to where it says home at the bottom of the picture on this page.   By following this suggestion it will help you with your network too.

Basically I am just a tax nerd, have been all my life. However I have found the more open you are to opportunities the better off you will be in this world. That makes my what is know as an open networker on Linkedin, I will connect with anyone. I am not an expert on Linkedin by any means but one day when I was asking someone to connect I mentioned that I had just been refilled on invites. My new connect asked how I did that. I used that same line for the next month and got asked the same question four times. I started thinking there was a lot of little things it took my sometime to learn. Through this blog I plan to share some of those "Linked Secrets"
