Growing up, you probably heard your parents or grandparents say, “You only have one chance to make a first impression, so make it a good one.” And this holds true for LinkedIn today as well.

Unlike 15-20 years ago, today you probably won’t need to be present to make that first impression. If you don’t believe me, try Googling yourself. The very first result 9 out of 10 times will be your LinkedIn profile (thanks to LinkedIn’s SEO efforts).
