Favorite Friday: Yes, Your LinkedIn Profile Does Suck

Preorder the LinkedIn for Job Seekers DVD here.

Favorite Friday is a series where I share some of my favorite posts from yesterday or yesteryear.  I’ve been blogging for almost 4 years and have actually written some pretty good posts (me thinks!).

I really like doing LinkedIn Profile critiques.   I don’t have a lot of time to critique, and most people would simply benefit from getting my DVD and watching the critiques of 5 professionals to get an idea of what I am going to say, but every once in a while I take a break to really critique profiles.  Here are some:

I’m on LinkedIn — Now What blog: LinkedIn Profile Critique: Thom Allen (Feb 24, 2010)

JibberJobber blog: LinkedIn Profile & a LinkedIn Profile Makeover (Clint Goudie-Nice) (July 15, 2009)

Also, along those lines, I came across the LinkedIn Profile for Gary Kelly, CEO of Southwest Airlines.  His summary… um, how do I say…. sucks.  Here are two posts for more info:

I’m on LinkedIn — Now What blog: Nuts About Southwest, But Not Gary Kelly’s Profile (Oct 9, 2008) (hey, I thought that title was AWESOME :))

That post was supposedly going to end up on his desk, after someone at SW saw it on Twitter, but alas…

I’m on LinkedIn — Now What blog: Gary Kelly and Southwest Make Zero Changes (May 22, 2009) – so much for me being influential :p

How’s your LinkedIn Profile?
