I learnt a new Linked In tip today (Thanks to Otis Collier)

This might be really simple, and the power users of Linked In will laugh at me for not knowing it already, but I learnt a simple trick from a video that was shared with me via Facebook.
The video was about making your contacts settings visible to everyone, whether you are connected with them or not. This is great advice, and i have included the video for you to watch.
The bit I didn’t know, and I love this, is that you can drag and drop the sections of your profile in to any order you want by clicking on the edit button in settings and moving them around.
This means you can position the key details where you want them and make your profile a little different to the others that might have been looked at. Moving the download of your resume and a presentation of the job you are looking for near to the top of your profile seems a great idea.
I will be doing a makeover on my linked In profile this week. Look out for changes!
The advice on being easy to contact is on the money. The easier you are to contact, the more likely you will get a call.
Thanks for sharing the knowledge Otis, and Kay Kellison, for bringing it up on my radar via Facebook. true meaning of friend.
