Power Of The Photo
LinkedIn profiles are 11X more likely to be viewed if a photo is included. Don’t believe us? We put the numbers to the test. Check out the results. 
[[MORE]]

Soon-to-be grads, Rebecca and Scott, participated in a case study allowing us to test the power of their LinkedIn profile photo. Through the Face The World program, we provided them with a professional headshot. Check out the results!*:
Number of New (Unique) Profile Views: Combined increase of 63%
Number of New Page Views: Combined increase of 69%
How can you get ahead?  Profile Photo Dos & Don’ts:
DO: Choose a plain white backdrop or a non-distracting nature scene. Avoid busy backgrounds.   
DON’T: Wear something overly formal or overly casual.  Ditch the suit jackets and t-shirts. You want to come across as confident and approachable, not formal and stiff.  
DO: Wear a clean & crisp button-down shirt in a solid color or a non-distracting print (e.g., striped or checked pattern). 
DO: Smile!
DON’T: Include a silhouette or profile of your face. Look directly at the camera — this angle will allow you to come across as approachable and confident to recruiters.
*Case study is not representative of a formal sample size. Results sourced over four consecutive weeks – two weeks with no profile photo, followed by two weeks with a dedicated professional headshot.

How to Network on LinkedIn
Do your homework.Before an informational interview, a formal interview, or a networking event, use LinkedIn’s Advanced Search and Company Pages to learn about the background and interests of the people you’re meeting.
You’re more experienced than you think.Think broadly about all your experience, including summer jobs, unpaid internships, volunteer work, and student organizations. You never know what might catch someone’s eye.
Use your inbox.Networking doesn’t mean reaching out cold to strangers. Start building your LinkedIn network by uploading your online address book (from your email account) and connecting to people you know and trust.
Get personal.As you build your connections, customize your requests with a friendly note and, if necessary, a reminder of where you met, who you met through, or what organization you have in common.
Join the “In” crowd.LinkedIn Groups can help you form new connections. Start with your school groups and reach out to alumni (they love to connect with students). Find volunteer organizations and associations you belong to.

Request informational interviews.As a student, don’t ask professional contacts for a job. Instead, ask for a brief phone conversation to seek their job search advice. Alumni, family friends, and industry leaders are often willing to do so.
100% complete = 40x more opportunities.Building connections starts with people seeing all you have to offer. Members with complete profiles are 40x more likely to receive opportunities through LinkedIn.
Step away from the computer!Support your online networking with a real human touch. Set up calls, attend live events, and send snail mail notes to people you interact with on LinkedIn.
