The best ways to communicate on LinkedIn

Earlier this week we talked about Using LinkedIn to find a New Role – Now use my 9 top tips on how to communicate on LinkedIn

Communicate on Linkedin

  1. Multiply your connections. Start with your personal contacts, from your current supervisor to your hairdresser. Play around with the people and company searches on LinkedIn to discover more possible connections and start conversations with the people you meet. Read: How to block and report inappropriate contact on LinkedIn
  2. Personalise your invitations. [Tweet “Unique invitations promote conversation.”] When you ask people to connect with you, refer to details like where you met or interests that you share.
  3. Collect endorsements. Endorsing someone on LinkedIn is as easy as clicking on one of their skills. Brighten someone’s day by giving them a well-deserved endorsement. They’ll often give you one back.
  4. Seek recommendations. Recommendations have more impact than endorsements. Consider who can give you the most persuasive testimonials.
  5. Ask for introductions. Similarly, your contacts can provide referrals and introductions to people you want to get to know. Thank people for considering your requests and be gracious if they decide to decline. Read: LinkedIn – Should I connect with people I don’t know?
  6. Prepare for interviews. LinkedIn is a great resource for finding information on companies and staff members. You may discover that you went to the same high school as the person interviewing you. These connections are worth knowing beforehand. Read: Using LinkedIn to find a New Role 
  7. Continue your education. Take a look at who LinkedIn designates as the influencers in your industry. Read the latest news about relevant products and management trends.
  8. Share your expertise. At the same time, [Tweet “LinkedIn provides a forum for expressing your own viewpoints.”] Post updates on conferences you attend or explain a technical topic you’re knowledgeable about.
  9. Join groups. Groups are one of the most popular features on the site. Participate in discussions and ask thought-provoking questions.

📢New program: How to create inclusive job postings

In today's rapidly evolving world, it's essential for organisations to embrace diversity and inclusion. Organisations unconsciously communicate their company cultures and values in everything they do including their job postings. These can either attract or repel talent from a diverse range of backgrounds.

A crucial step in this process is ensuring that your job postings reflect these values. Our training program will equip you with the knowledge and skills to craft job descriptions that attract candidates from all backgrounds, eliminating bias and fostering an inclusive hiring process.
