The new LinkedIn profile look hit me today so I thought I would quickly point out the changes and how they make an impact on you. The main things to note are:
- Your contact details are hidden away making the whole area much smaller.
- Your employment history is condensed
- Your image is bigger so make sure it’s a good one.
Your contact details might be hidden away, but with the new layout, it pulls up the extra information such as your address and anything else you have in this area, making it more visible. This previously sat at the bottom of most peoples page.
This means that everything has moved up quite a bit making your summary even more important as it’s so much closer to the top of the page now or “above the fold”, so spend some time and focus on getting your summary reading well.
I like the new look, what do you think?
