Deb Dib, one of my career expert partners, showed me a recent change on her LinkedIn profile. I had seen Macy’s as one of her companies before, and really had no idea how she made the change to get from a buyer at Macy’s to a career coach. Check out the explanation now:
Two things I love:
1. She is bridging one role to another… which is something I had wondered about (just how did she get into coaching??).
2. She has her personality and her brand all over this. You get a her brand in her summary, and she carries it through to here. This is normally a boring “did this, did that” section, but she spices it up.
Do you have gaps on your LinkedIn profile? If you can help people understand the transitions that are not so obvious, you’ll probably create more interest in who you are and what you bring to the table.
