Why Should You Keep Your LinkedIn Updated?

There’s an obvious reason and a not-so-obvious reason as per Career Updates. The obvious reason is to keep it updated, will help in better job search and networking.

When your profile is up-to-date and polished, it immediately makes you more attractive. Imagine a recruiter coming across your profile and seeing only the title you had two promotions ago. You’re doing yourself a big disservice by not highlighting your most recent accomplishments!

The not-so-obvious reason is that consistently refreshing your profile helps you keep track of activities. Like, that includes what you’ve done and where you’ve come from.

“To varying degrees we all do things that are outside of our own job description, [and] sometimes they just don’t necessarily get articulated in what our role and responsibility is,” says Muse career coach Al Dea. “Those types of things are always good to add into your profile…because if you don’t they’re really easy to forget.”

Sure, you will remember it when you’ll land a big deal. But what about all the other little things you accomplish on a regular basis? Writing them down locks them in memory and further makes your case for being a stellar employee (and hire).

And, says Dea, “it serves as a forcing mechanism for you. It is to actually reflect and think about not only what it is you do. Rather, it’ll consider what are all the things you did but what was the impact of what you did.”

This kind of self-reflection can also lead you to think more carefully about what you actually enjoy doing—and what roles you might want to pursue in the future as a result.

One note before we get started: When you edit your LinkedIn, you’ll want to turn off your “Sharing profile edits” settings (under “Settings & Privacy”) so that your network isn’t constantly notified of the changes you’re making (of course, there are some caveats to this that I’ll highlight later).
