If You Have Skills Listed Are You Showing How Skilled You Are?

Here’s the discovery I had recently It is classic about what I have been thinking of, what are the outer limits of LI.  What is it that we don’t know about LI that could benefit us?  When you are on the edit skills page there’s a box to type in the skill.  Under that are the skills you have listed.  If you put your cursor on one skill and left click you can choose your proficiency, and how long you have been doing it.  If you do this it does something.  When someone is on your profile if their cursor goes over a skill a window pops up with the skill and a message that says, “Ray is an Expert, 20+ Years Experience.”  How cool is that?  Well probably not that cool because no one knows to put their cursor on your skills.  Still it could happen.  I am going to work on updating my skill 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"
