Ten tips on using social media to build your professional network:
  1. Avoid cutting and pasting your resume - It is best to describe your experience, skills, and qualifications as you would to someone you just met.
  2.  Enhance your profile with language that markets you - Use adjectives, action verbs and and language that describes your experience and qualifications.
  3. Write a personal tagline - Create something eye-catching to describe who you are.
  4. Summarize yourself in 30 seconds or less - You’ve got 5 – 10 seconds to capture someone’s attention. The more meaningful your summary, the more time you will get from readers.
  5. Point out your skills - Use key words and industry buzzwords.  Highlight your abilities and professional interests. 
  6. Explain your experience - Help the reader grasp the clear points. Use clear, succinct phrases and break them down visually.  Use quantitative examples when appropriate.  For example, "Manage a $5.2M budget."
  7. Distinguish yourself from the crowd - Add websites to groups or organizations that showcase your abilities or passions.
  8. Ask and answer questions – This helps to establish your expertise, raise visibility, and build your social image with people in your network.
  9. Get recommendations from colleagues, clients and employers - Meaningful comments about your abilities or specific skills shapes other people’s opinion of you. Think quality, not quantity.
  10. Build your connections – Search for commonalities with other professionals. Identify connections that will add to your credibility and pursue those.
