Adding personal info to your LinkedIn profile and why you should do it

by admin on February 26, 2013

Since LinkedIn is all about networking and connecting with people, your profile acts as your electronic business card. Therefore, your LinkedIn profile should have the same info you have on your business card – i.e. phone, email address, website, etc.

I for one no longer collect business cards from people. I rely on using the LinkedIn mobile app on my Android phone to find people on LinkedIn and communicate with them that way. Therefore if you don’t list your phone number on your LinkedIn account you’re going to make it very hard for me to phone you. Several people have lost referrals from me because of this.
