LinkedIn rolled out another new feature this week and I found it worth more than a few minutes of my time. It’s called LinkedIn Skills, and within LinkedIn’s powerful social networking tool, you can now conduct a search and produce a unique page on a specific skill.
You’ll soon see if it appears whether the skills list on your profile is up to snuff compared to other people in your industry or market. I recommend using these insights to make some edits to your profile and/or perhaps reconsider how you are positioning yourself. (Contact me if you need help with this!)
Basically, you can type in any string and get a snapshot of that skill within LinkedIn’s database of 90 million (and counting) profiles. A search on “Online Marketing” is below and you can watch a short You Tube video on this new feature HERE.
