Recently I’ve received the email from LinkedIn with the subject line:
“LinkedIn: You’re one of our most active Premium members“.
I thought this could be the trick to get me pay the Premium account, which is BTW very good but also expensive. Anyhow, I took a good look at the LinkedIn statistics and I’ve found amazing results.
But, then email body follows: “You’re on your way to mastering LinkedIn!”
I went to this link: https://www.linkedin.com/wvmx/profile/rankings , and found out that I my rank in the top 3% for profile views among professionals like me. And I am ranked in the top 5% , on the place 27 which BTW is my lucky number, for profile views among my 700 connections on LinkedIn.
So what inspired me to work on my LinkedIn profile.
Recently I’ve moved to London, the most popular city on the planet earth. Since London is also the most expensive city in the world, I needed the money so I set my higher goals to find the best possible job in the Digital Marketing, Social Media and Music Industry fields.
Then I saw the short presentation “Employability in the Digital Age” by UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHAMPTON on the FutureLearn online course. So please take a look at this very useful presentation:

Second, the picture of you is really important. I had a great luck by getting on the photo shoot with one of the best Swiss photographers at the International Radio Festival
in Zurich. And yes, I got some really cool photos of me. Done!
