To maximize your success using LinkedIn in your job search, you should complete these activities:

Customize your LinkedIn profile URL (www.linkedin.com/in/yourname).

Include your contact information, LinkedIn allows you to add your phone number, Instant Messenger contact information, and multiple email addresses (in addition to your primary/sign-in email).

Provide your Twitter handle, and add languages that you speak.

Fill in key projects you’ve worked on (a separate section within the profile).

Add a list of courses you’ve taken. (This helps with keyword searches.)
