  1. Mam! I m a student i recently give the exam of class 12! I wana do some online job so someone suggest me about linkedin! So mam how can i use this app to get a job of anytype! Is that possible to get job for me?

  2. I really enjoyed watching this video! I am not on LinkedIn yet because I have been out of the workforce for a long time due to losing partial sight back in 2011. I'm nervous to make my account because I don't see too well and there are gaps so I have subscribed to your channel to learn more and I will check out your Facebook group as well. Thank you so much!

  3. Great video and helpful tips, thanks, Mam. Could I ask two questions about LinkedIn? 1st, I'm an international student and not in the business program, do the Linkedin works to me? 2nd, how to find someone who has a similar experience or interest with me and how to contact them positively? I'm a LinkedIn beginner. Based on your introduction, Linkedin would be a great app for my future career.

  4. I've watched this video about 3 times now and some of your other videos also in order to setup my LinkedIn. I purposely came back just to say thanks. You really helped and I appreciate it a lot! Keep up the good work 😀

  5. Biggest problem with LinkedIn is that is owned by Microsoft I don’t like to using products & services how is owned by Microsoft! I will become more active on LinkedIn if it was not owned by microsoft!

  6. I have a spotty work history, no post-secondary education and 1-month experience in my current business…. Good luck to me

  7. hi, im begginer at linkedin. I`m working now with wood, but im looking for web developer jobs, and linkedin asked me for recent job, should i write my current job, or job which im lookin for?

  8. You should realize that for a true beginner using Linkedin, the list of suggestions offered is nothing short of daunting… and leaving the viewer overwhelmed.

  9. Thanks for making this video i'm new to linkedin.i created linkedin account next day it showing restricted i don't know why it showing like that. plz solve my problem.

  10. Great video. I'm a newbie that's been avoiding social media, but now I need every advantage in my job search. I haven't yet used LinkedIn until today, so I still need to figure it all out. I'll get back with you when I figure what my biggest challenge is. Best Regards.

  11. This was great thank. My biggest problem with LinkedIn is how to use this as a networking and job search tool.

  12. Has linkedin changed since you did this video because there is no volunteer or even hobbies section to fill in?

  13. Great suggestion with the cover photo! Assuming you have chosen the right cover photo, it can add an additional splash of wow to help get hr/recruiters attention!.

  14. Hi! I m using LinkedIn… But how I used and work I don't know can you guide me because I m not understand 😔

  15. This place is useless, nobody cares and mostly all people never update their status, I know somebody who is a janitor (utility) and post as manager(LOL).

  16. I watched another one of your videos and it leads me here. Now you have another video for picking a profile picture and another video for a headline… How many videos do I have to watch??

    As I continue to watch your video, I don't have any accomplishments or work history. I recently graduated. I don't like the idea of listing things like that. I see people on Linkedln write stuff like that and they're full of it. They have all these fancy job titles when in reality they don't do shit.

  17. Engaging tutorial and delivered in a friendly, easy-to-understand way. I already have a profile but need to improve/update this, and this tutorial helped a great deal.

  18. Kind of sucks but transition from employee to business owner and utilizing the benefits of LinkedIn with all the existing people on there that have known me as an employee gives me some what of stage fright optimizing my LinkedIn as a business owner instead of an employee I guess part of me doesn't want a lot of people to know what I'm doing because I'm sure everybody is going to have something to say or give me their doubts and gossip behind my back it almost makes me want to delete everybody that I do know, revamp my LinkedIn profile grow my business do what I got to do to be successful and let my work show. I guess with that said I feel like I second-guess myself on my profile because I'm not exactly sure the "proper" way to market myself as an entrepreneur

  19. I like the content but because of the lower boarder hiding your right thumb (I assume) when you put up your hands to emphasize 7 strategies it looks like you only have 6 fingers up 😉

  20. I've watched this before and yes it's good with good tips. My problem is wording and catching the readers eye. I've had people look at my profile but not contacting me even though I'm contactable. Still trying to find out why even though I'm trying to make my profile look good.

  21. Linked In For Beginning Robots
    : A Tall Tale

    Bollix the Bot was universally successful, and although his reputation had no bounds, it was nonetheless bounded. This was a paradox that had to be solved, and as usual, he thought of a way. Bollix thought of an image, a true image, or at least an image that could sell his image, an idealized profile, fit and finished in all dimensions. It would be better than Bollix, an archetype for his own existence, broadcast and streamed in all its best aspects, down to the last nut and bolt.

    Lucilius listened to Bollix’s plan and was not impressed. “Who wants to hear about you, much less an imprecise copy?”

    “Precision is not the key,” said Bollix. “Marketing is a better word for it. What is a more ideal and perfect construction than my own image of myself! I am my supreme creation, and yet despite myself, I can do even better!”

    “To get yourself noticed, your notoriety precedes you more than you think,” said Lucilius.

    “I am talking about a vetted reputation, that will get me noticed in the right way, and bring me business. In short, I need to broadcast myself, not all of me, mind you, but enough so that it encourages the user to make an in bot purchase, which of course are the services of yours truly!”

    Lucilius was suitably skeptical. “And so you will make yourself an app! How so?”

    “Simple, I will just use the universal bot net. I will simply link in, and port over all my best, most glorious, most fantastical attributes. I will better myself by sheer force of imagination. I simply upload my source code, select memorable memories of my most capacious creations and representations, the more durable and less duplicitous types to be sure. I will polish them up, add some veracity and replicability, a mix of bright metaphors and polished non-sequiturs, and put in my list of referred accomplishments the universe itself.”

    “The universe? Don’t you think that’s a stretch?”

    “Only if they fact check, and you know how lazy droids can be!”

    Bollix thought of all the possibilities. A perfect Bollix, broadcast to every corner in the universe, everywhere at the same time. Portable and instantly transportable, just hook up a 4d printer to the stream and out pops a Bollix, limited edition of course!

    Soon, after a few billion cycles, enough time for Bollix’s image to traverse the known universe, the feedback started coming in.

    “Impressive!” said Lucilius. “From what I have seen there have been twenty quadrillion downloads of you. That’s number two on the free bot app chart, right behind robot pong.”

    “Yes,” said Bollix dejectedly. “But there are not buying. No one is upgrading to the real Bollix, the basic one seems to be doing quite nicely.”

    “That’s true,” said Lucilius. “From the feedback I’ve been receiving. Your basic Bollix is doing just fine. Your perfected image seems to fit perfectly; your resume has wings! And now innumerable Bollixs are moving about doing all the good that is recorded upon them. Your reputation is being restored, much to your ruin!”

    “They are everywhere!” Bollix lamented. “I can’t get a job because the other Bollixs are there before me, and when they are not they are offering better terms, better work, and better guarantees! Soon there will be no more work for me because everyone will be in the thrall of their pitiless perfection. This is intolerable!!!”

    “So what do you expect?” said Lucilius. “You can only blame yourself or your selfs!! All you can offer as the real Bollix is your duplicity, your underhandedness, and your false promises. These fake Bollixs are an improvement over you!”

    “What we do?” asked Bollix in despair.

    “How about uploading the real Bollix in the place of that fake one?”

    “And confront me again, but in infinite abundance, and with a reputation then I could not escape? I would rather not!”

    “Then it is your own fault you are too perfect for your own good!”

    “Hmm,” said Bollix, as his diodes lit up with any idea. “Too perfect! That’s the solution! I will simply upload a better Bollix, a transcendently perfect Bollix. It will be immanent, omniscient, and thunderous, a holier than thou trinity of Bollix! But first I will embed in its source code an expiration date, when it needs to return to its source.”

    “A product recall in other words?”

    “Yes, but that is only the beginning of my plan!”

    “And the rest?”

    “You will see, but first it is off the planet Gargantuous, the biggest planet in these parts.”

    “Room enough it would seem to house the sum of your ill begotten creation!”

    Landing on the planet, Bollix looked at the transit of the white dwarf above, and checked his chronometer. “And I expect all the Bollixs to be here momentarily, I expect they all should be here just in time before its sun burns out.”

    “Well here they come,” said Lucilius, pointing to a swarm of Bollixs aggregating in space.

    Soon, the original Bollix stood square on an infinite plane as an immense Bollix, an amalgamation of all his copies, rose over the horizon bestriding billowing clouds. The avatar grew immensely, with luminosity and grandiosity that outshone a thousand stars. It surveyed the world with an angry scowl and with its right hand hurled thunderbolts, and with its left waved its hand across the metallic void.

    A junkyard rose up, and its shards quivered and assembled, and gears, pulleys, circuit, bolts, and pieces of metal began to assemble and resemble from the crust of the planet.

    “He’s resurrecting all the machines that were ever built! You put that into his resume?” said Lucilius.

    “Of course,” said Bollix. “I just uploaded all of the blueprints for bots, widgets, contraptions, and gizmos both present and obsolete. It will reconstruct them for me on the spot. It is after all a highlight of my auto-modus vitae!”

    Soon the whole planet was covered with a maze of writhing and clinking and clanking contraptions. The din was enormous as the seething host looked up to their creator for a recharge.

    And, much to their surprise, in less than a wink the almighty Bollix shrank to an infinitesimal dot, and vanished.

    “It’s gone!” said Lucilius.

    “Figures,” said Bollix. “This universe was not cracked up to what it wanted to be, as there was one aspect of its piped in resume that it could never match nor claim to make. So, it’s off to do just that.”

    “And what is that?” asked Lucilius.

    “Why make a universe of course! I am sure it’s now trying its almighty hand at such an endeavor. Well, good luck with that! Now it has its own universe to create and lord over and resurrect to its heart’s content. But for my part we have this entire world just crawling with bots who need their own mechanical savior and repair bot, which I will of course become and provide, for a fee.”

  22. Hi Heather
    Great video.
    My biggest challenge/s when I'M using LINKEDIN in is that I can not find what I search for, and when I follow specific poeple I can never find there posts, instead it shows me a heap of stuff in the feed that i don't know what it's about, linked in is very complex, and I am always open to learning new things, but I can't seem to get a clear idea on how to simply execute my tasks I find my time on LinkedIn very unproductive due not getting done my intended tasks on LinkedIn, I get put off sometimes, and overthink.
    I will never give up!

  25. My biggest challenge is identifying what I do. There are a few different ways I earn income and I don't want to eliminate any of those by having too narrow of a job title

  26. What if you have two entirely different ways to make a living? Should you make different LinkedIn profiles? I'm both a marketer for my husband's art and an aspiring health & nutrition coach.

  27. my biggest challenge is during adding my certificates and re write there content, is there an easier way to do that?

  28. I created a post with a photograph. It will not publish it vertically no matter the size or how I save it; vertically or horizontally. There does not appear to be a rotate photo in the posting edit area?
