LinkedIn Location


 



Have you checked out your “Experience” section on LinkedIn lately?

They have a new field for “Location” and its completely user-generated.  So while I recommend you put the locations you work: “Fort Collins, Front Range, Greater Denver Area” you can also put “In computers everywhere!



I think for those of you who have Brick and Mortar businesses or work with a strong local audience, this section might help with your find-ability.  Since LinkedIn only allows you to pop in one zip code in the Headline section, this will allow those of you who have a greater travel circumference to reach more people.

It will also be useful for people who work for companies that might be based in Boston, but you work locally.  You can certainly let people know that as well.

So time to get back to you profile and update your locations!  Its as easy as 1…2…3…


1.  Edit profile

2.  Scroll down to experience and click on edit

3. Add locations

There’s your tip of the day!

Let me know what happens for you.
