4 things you must remove from your LinkedIn profile

Article originally published on Forbes
More and more, people are forming their first impression of you from the results of a web search on your name. When people are evaluating you in a professional capacity, they often go directly to your LinkedIn profile. But even if their research starts with Google, they’ll end up at LinkedIn because your profile will most likely be one of the top results.
So you need to be concerned about what you put in your LinkedIn profile — making sure it’s authentic, compelling to your audience and aspirational — positioning you for the future. You need to be equally focused on removing things from your profile that will get in the way of your success. You want all of the content to “wow” those who are making decisions about you.
Here are four things you should remove from your profile in order to make a positive impact on readers.
 
1. Wrong or irrelevant endorsements. Delete endorsements for the skills that you don’t want to be known for; they just muddy the waters. Personal branding is about being known for SOMEthing, not 10,000 things. That means you need to make your skills pure — positioning you for what’s next, not creating confusion among readers. “Is this person a marketing exec or a real-estate agent?” Make a list of all skills that are relevant to who you are and where you’re going without looking at your LinkedIn profile. Then, take a look at the skills for which you have been endorsed. Is there a strong correlation? And make sure your top three skills perfectly reflect how you want to be known. Those are the ones that show up prominently when someone is looking at your profile. Viewers need to click “view more” to see the rest of your skills. And don’t worry about offending anyone. LinkedIn will not send a note to those who endorsed you when you remove their endorsements.
 
2. Experience that distracts from your brand aspirations. If you started your career in retail and now you’re all about pharmaceutical research, you want to diminish the past (unless you have a really good story about how it supports what you’re doing and what you want to be doing). Of course, it’s important to show progression in your career, so you may want to group roles from the past under one category like My Proving Ground or Internships and Early Career Experience.
 
3. Low-quality images. I’m not just talking about your headshot. Any images you added to your profile in the summary or experience sections need to be high-quality and appropriately cropped. Nothing says “lack of attention to detail” like blurry, badly cropped, trite, or unflattering images. Of course, this is most important when it comes to your headshot. If you use a selfie, a photo where you crop out others, or a photo your mother took of you at last year’s family outing, it’s time to remove and replace. Invest in a professionally photographed headshot that projects you in the most positive and powerful light. And avoid full body shots. Let viewers see your face.
 
4. Third-person writing. Let’s face it, everyone knows you wrote your own LinkedIn summary and experience sections. It’s much more transparent and direct to write in the first person than to pretend that your publicist wrote your content. When you write in the first person, you create a conversation between you and the reader, and that helps you establish a more authentic relationship with them. I am seeing more and more profiles using the first person (even from CEOs – who probably do have someone writing it for them) but not everyone is there yet. It’s time for you take the third person out of your profile and get comfortable with me, myself, and I.

Industry News and Updates

I cannot believe we are already at the start of Q4! September was a complete blur with Hurricane Harvey, Irma & Maria (which I hope everyone made it through without incident), and now we are closing the quarter, preparing budgets, and looking ahead at 2018.

With respect to our business, we have continued to see steady growth in both our permanent placement and temporary staffing divisions. Unemployment in Houston is continuing on a downward trend. Hiring demand is slowly increasing.  Now, this will not guarantee finding a new position quickly as there are still a myriad of factors that contribute to getting hired; however, it’s always nice when the external conditions are moving in your favor.  In addition to this, September, October, and November tend to be some of the best hiring months of the year.

The last quarter is an excellent time of year to take internal inventory if you are currently employed. Think about what you accomplished/achieved this year and be sure to add it to your resume. It is a lot harder to reflect on everything you have accomplished over the years if you don’t take a moment to jot it down.

As always feel free to reach out to me with any questions. I will do my best to get back with you as soon as possible. Oh, and GO ASTROS!!!!!

How to Write the Perfect Post-Interview Thank You Note

By Michael Schneider – Human capital specialist, Welltower
It’s not just another formality. Forgetting to send this email could prevent you from moving forward in the job interview process.

CREDIT: Getty Images
You spent hours researching, cramming, and planning for the interview. You practiced hundreds of behavioral based questions and spent a much-needed vacation day interviewing. Yes, the hard part may be over, but there is still a critical step left in the process — the thank you note.

Although many see a follow-up email as a formality, a CareerBuilder survey revealed that 22 percent of managers said they were less likely to hire a candidate if they didn’t send a thank you note.

I don’t consider myself “The” subject matter expert, however, I’ve spent the past five years in executive search, HR and talent management. I’ve had the opportunity to coach hundreds of candidates on post-interview communications and I’ve definitely received a few. Here are some best practices that I’ve picked up along the way.

Follow the usual email etiquette
Write a subject line that’s meaningful and reflective of what’s inside. Be succinct and professional. Use appropriate salutations and a complimentary close. Even though you’ve built some rapport through the interview, now’s not the time to let down your guard and be casual or comical — unless the organization’s culture encourages it. Remember, everyone expects you to be on your best behavior during the interviewing process. If there is even a shred of doubt or concern regarding your professionalism, managers assume it will magnify once you start.

Get the timing right
It’s best to send a thank you note within 24 hours of your interview. That way, you’re still on the minds of your interviewers and it’s easier for you to remember important details from your conversations. However, I would recommend that it’s a little longer than the first hour afterward. Although some may appreciate the enthusiasm, an immediate email can come across as desperate.

Show genuine appreciation
Open up the note with a thank you. But, make sure it’s sincere and authentic. A generic thank you will bolster a generic response. Show that you paid attention and care about the time they spent by mentioning specifics and highlighting details that you appreciated. It’s easy to make a mistake by being too brief when it comes to showing gratitude and too detailed when it comes to selling our backgrounds.

Personalize it
When you have a collection of business cards, it’s tempting to write a universal email and blind copy everyone involved. I get it. It’s much more efficient. But, I have seen people compare and analyze emails from candidates, and they’re not too impressed when they see how little effort went into the process. Taking the time to personalize your emails speaks to your interest in the position, your respect of each person involved, and leaves a positive impression.

Reiterate your interest
Job descriptions are often vague and generalized. After interviewing, you now have a better understanding of the position and a glimpse into the company’s culture. It’s important to recall this added detail and reiterate that you’re still excited, qualified, and interested in pursuing the opportunity. Make sure that you don’t leave any doubts in the minds of your interviewers.

Although I can never say that I’ve seen someone get a job because of their thank you note, I’ve definitely witnessed people unintentionally wreck their chances by not taking it seriously. These tips will ensure your thank you note is seen as a tribute to your personal brand and not a detriment.

(Sample Thank You Note)
Subject: Thank you, John! (Executive Recruiter Interview)

John Doe –

I wanted to express my sincerest appreciation for the time you devoted to learning more about my background as well as for the insights that you shared.

In addition to the clarification that you provided on the role, I was specifically excited to learn that ABC Company places a large emphasis on team collaboration. I believe that fostering an inclusive, team-based approach is essential to leveraging diversity and spurring innovation. Also, I was thrilled to hear that your team leverages “unique software.” I have “X” years of experience using this program and feel confident that I could hit the ground running.

After reviewing the “Executive Recruiter” position with you, I am even more enthusiastic about the prospect of joining ABC Company. Should you have any additional questions regarding my background, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Have a great week,

Michael Schneider
