What to post

Use the short bio space to give fol­low­ers an overview of your CV. In­clude up to five fea­tured pho­tos that high­light your per­son­al­ity and ex­per­tise (for ex­am­ple, hik­ing or schmooz­ing at a net­work­ing event). Share ar­ti­cles re­lated to your ca­reer.

Who to fol­low

A new study sug­gests you’re more likely to find a job through an ac­quain­tance than a BFF. So search for em­ploy­ers, and see whether you have any mu­tual friends. Ask them to in­tro­duce you via e-mail.

How to com­ment

In­stead of just say­ing ‘Awe­some!’, try to start a mean­ing­ful con­ver­sa­tion – just like you would IRL, says Larssen. ‘That could be as sim­ple as, “Looks like a great event! I’ve heard her speak be­fore and I love the mes­sage. What was your favourite part?”’
