LinkedIn Pet Peeve: DO NOT SHOOT FOR 100%

November 14th, 2011 | by Jason Alba |

I continually here LinkedIn people saying you need to shoot for 100% completion on your Profile.

I regularly hear this from trainers that work at LinkedIn.  I also hear it from non-LinkedIn employees.

I’m sorry but I don’t agree.

Why?

I think you need to focus on the quality of your Profile.

I’ve seen plenty of 100% complete Profiles that SUCK.

I’d rather see an 80% or 90% complete that knocks my socks off than a 100% Profile that SUCKS.

You can always inch towards the 100% (nothing wrong with GETTING 100%, just don’t FOCUS ON 100%, and have that be more important than the quality of your Profile).
