When finished click Save Changes.

15. Share Your Work

Find a way to share your work inside your groups. Writers may want to add links to their articles; developers or IT managers may want to show how they handled a common problem or share links to different tools, information they discovered on relevant technologies or anything that they think might help or inform someone.

Using LinkedIn applications, you can share Powerpoint Presentations, store a copy of your resume that is downloadable and more. These can be located on the LinkedIn Applications page here.

A strong profile can be a key differentiator when recruiters or employers search online for potential candidates. Keeping your LinkedIn profile up to date should be something you strive to do each year just like your resume. LinkedIn is one of the only social networking sites that can give you career ROI, because it appeals largely to professionals, so there is no reason not to spend some time there to create a new profile or straighten up your old one.
