This article offers a wonderful insight into what should go into your profile on LinkedIn. Simply loading a skeleton profile is not going to help. Besides it gives the impression you do not care for details. How right this article is, when it says your profile is like a mirror. It should capture you as you are. So spend some time when you load your profile. Step back and view it as a potential client and see whether it meets your requirements, only then make it available to the general public out there.

Thnaks for article! LinkedIn influences on people's professional life and career greatly and is as relevant as ever. This network has become an effective tool to form your online professional individuality and one of the leading tools nowadays for recruiting managers. I think I'd use professional LinkedIn profile writing online, as I know that there are many tricky points which must be considered and I don't want to look amateurish.
