Linkedin Profile Enhancement In Less Than Three And A Half Minutes

Being visible, in my opinoin is very important for MBAs. I know that there are many concerns about the digital footprint and that by exposing yourself you can harm your image or limit your opportunities. But like a corporation, each and every one of us must run his own small PR department and another department for Marketing & Sales. Keeping your LinkedIn profile nice, professional and informative has more advantages than disadvantages:
- You are exposed to more opportunities
- You have the chance to tell your story to more people
- You might get an advice from a colleague that knows someone who knows someone who might be interested in a person like yourself.

Recently I found this nice article: Linkedin Profile Enhancement In Less Than Three And A Half Minutes. That explains really well how to get & use the LinkedIn profile button. You can use it not only on your blog/website, but also add it to your email signatures.

Enjoy! :)

Hey Alex,

I find your blog very refreshing and insightful. I know you must be quite busy, but would really appreciate it if you could post more often...

Quick one....i hope to get admitted to LBS in 2011. I'm 26, Nigerian, a senior investment analyst with the Private Equity subsidiary of Nigeria's biggest bank (quite a mouthful), and should have about 5 years experience by my application date. I took the Gmat of recent and scored 670....Think i got a shot?

Hey Bayo,

Glad to hear that you are enjoying it. Actually it is very motivating to know that people find it useful. I'll do my best to post some more. Are there specific areas that you are interested in?

You have great GMAT and seems like a very good experience. Why did you decide to wait until next year? I think you should definitely apply!
