4 reasons you absolutely want LinkedIn premium

Is LinkedIn Premium a good idea? For years clients and others have asked me if I thought they should upgrade to LinkedIn Premium and for a long time, the answer was no.

However, in the last few years I have discovered a number of good reasons that the investment makes sense. It particularly makes sense for job seekers but it also makes sense for professionals who are using LinkedIn to network.

4 reasons you absolutely want LinkedIn premium

  1. LinkedIn Premium allows you to see all the people who view your profile instead of just 5 and determine specifically which people from which companies or job titles are viewing your profile.
  2. Only with LinkedIn Premium are you able to see how your skills match the job postings and adjust your skills to better reflect the types of jobs you want. (Did you know that LinkedIn has more job postings that most other job boards even though that is just one element of the power of LinkedIn?)
  3. With LinkedIn Premium, you are able to see salaries for many of the jobs posted and determine if the job fits your financial needs.
  4. As you review your ranking compared to others in your network, you are able to see full ranking and not just where you are now positioned.

When I help clients create their LinkedIn profiles, I explain the details of LinkedIn that most people are not aware exist. Since LinkedIn changes their app often, I help my clients stay on top of the latest changes.

You might think that Reason #2 and #3 only affect job seekers but if you are a hiring manager looking to expand your team, these features really help you understand the competition and help position your company to win the best candidates.

Is there generational disparity in technology aptitude?

What a title! The title, “Is there generational disparity in technology aptitude?” was prompted when I repeated a comment that someone thought people don’t know to hover for more information when they see a link and would need instructions. My millennial-aged client looked at me strangely and said, “it really depends who you are marketing… Continue Reading

How to reduce job stress: not my circus, not my monkeys

A client and I were reviewing her DISC assessment the other day. Her report said this: You demonstrate extremely high attention to detail as you strive for perfection. You strive to make things as high-quality as possible and may be disappointed when things turn out just “pretty good.” Few people on the team have the ability to… Continue Reading
