Creating a great LinkedIn profile

From seeking a new job to maintaining your personal brand, using LinkedIn is an important part of being a full-fledged professional in any industry these days.

As a Neurodiagnostic Professional, LinkedIn can be your go-to platform for connecting with potential employers and staying up to date on industry news. But in order to make the most of this website, it's important that your profile stands out from the crowd—which is easier said than done.Crafting an engaging and comprehensive LinkedIn profile doesn't have to take weeks or days, but you need to put some thought into it. In today's blog post, we'll share our top tips and tricks to help you create a great profile that will help attract job opportunities!

1.     Choose a Professional Photo: It may seem like a small detail but having a professional photo on your profile can make all the difference. Make sure to choose one that looks professional – avoid casual shots or selfies taken with your phone. A good rule of thumb is to have someone else take the photo for you using natural light or exterior lighting.

2.     Craft an Engaging Headline: Your headline is the first thing people will see when they visit your profile so make it count! Avoid generic titles such as“Neurodiagnostic Professional” and instead, try something catchy or descriptive such as “Clinical EEG Technician | Proven Leader in Neurodiagnostics” or“Certified PolysomnographyTechnologist | Experienced in Sleep DisorderDiagnosis & Treatment.”

3.     ShowcaseYour Experience & Accomplishments: Don’t just list your job duties in the experience section – talk about how you excelled at them! Describe any awards you received or projects you led that demonstrate how effective you were on the job and include any quantifiable results if possible. This will give potential employers and colleagues a snapshot of what it would be like to work with you and how successful you could be at their organization.  

4.     Endorsements/Recommendations:Endorsements received from colleagues within the neurodiagnostic industry can help give potential employers an idea of what kind of professional you are, while recommendations provide insight into how others have seen you perform in the field first-hand which can hold more weight than endorsements alone. So don't be afraid to ask for them!

5.     ReachOut & Network: One of the best ways to grow your online presence is by actively engaging with others within the field, including potential employers or colleagues from similar organizations/companies. Start conversations around topics related to neurodiagnostics and share helpful advice when appropriate –this type of networking can open up professional and personal opportunities down the road!

 Creating an outstanding profile on LinkedIn doesn’t have to be hard – just remember these few tips! Have a professional photo taken, craft an engaging headline that reflects who you are as a person/professional within this field (not just what title you hold), showcase any awards/accomplishments that set you apart from others; add visual media where appropriate; and actively reach out & network with others throughout the industry to broaden your connections & build relationships!
