I’ve know Lisa Hendrickson for a while, I can’t remember if we met when I was in Minnesota or what, but when I saw her LinkedIn Profile with symbols I had to ask HOW DO YOU DO THAT?
Now, I’m not advocating everyone should add this bling to their LinkedIn Profile, as it may be off-brand for many, but if YOU want to make your LinkedIn Profile just a little more snazzy, check this out (from her post at Call That Girl):
I’ve had a few folks ask me how I got the “stars” in my title and profile. To be honest, I saw the stars on someone else’s profile and copy and pasted into mine. I like having a bit of Rock Star on my profile as I’m a networking goddess and deserve to wear that tiara online! right? ★
Here is a list of fun ones to add some “flair” to your profile. If you would like to try others, feel free to test from the symbols area of Microsoft Word or HTML characters. If you have any more questions, feel free to email me at Lisa@callthatgirl.biz
It works for Lisa, as this is part of her brand… and now YOU know how to do it (just copy and paste any of the above symbols to your LinkedIn Profile – it works on Twitter also).
The question is, is it the right thing to do for your Profile? Only you can answer that
