As the market evolves, the bar gets higher for your LinkedIn profile. For good or bad, you’re putting yourself, and likely your company/employer out there. You need a LinkedIn strategy to best represent yourself. Enter our LinkedIn profile service.
Welcome to the Bold Career Project. This is Executive Career Consultant and Career Coach, Ian Christie. I’m a long-time fan of LinkedIn as a personal marketing platform and I had my profile up the year they launched.
Have you noticed the tension? Between your profile as personal marketing statement and platform and your profile as advertisement or business tool for your employer / company? It’s there and you need to resolve it.
I’ve determined over the years working with clients, teaching and speaking on LinkedIn strategies to MBAs and writing on the topic that there are different profile types, based on market, comfort levels and professional situation and goals. Not one type. Several. Which LinkedIn profile should you adopt?
I understand LinkedIn profiles & resumes and the perspectives and behaviours of hiring managers, human resources, and executive recruiters. Most importantly, however, based on 20+ years of experience, I understand what it means to craft and design a professional, personal marketing document.
It depends on four factors: my current load of pre-existing client commitments, your level of urgency, how much digging you need to do (and your availability) and how much consulting time we need to design your unique value. For an urgent and relatively straight forward situation, it could be less than 48 hours. Typically, 5 days from our consultation.
Once I understand the scope of the work, I will tell you honestly if I can make the deadline. I will charge a rush fee of $150.
Provide me with your background material (past resume/CV, LinkedIn profile URL, notes or documentation), fill out the intake questionnaire (a valuable exercise in thinking through in advance key questions about your strategy).
No. I’m not the service for you.
You can request a refund up to and including the (first) consultation. I do not offer refunds after that point.
I’m based in Vancouver Canada. Much of my work is remote and I provide the LinkedIn profile service to clients in Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary, Edmonton, Victoria, other Canadian centres, across the United States and internationally.
