ShaqWondering if you need a LinkedIn Profile? Even Shaq has a LinkedIn Profile!

Like many professionals, Shaquille O’Neal emphasizes his ability to lead teams on his LinkedIn Profile:

“Proven to lead teams to championships. I mean multiple championships.”

Those are pretty strong teamwork credentials, Shaq!

But I would recommend greater specificity on his business credentials.  Shaq states “I’m working on a lot of different ventures.”

When I Coach people on improving their LinkedIn Profiles, I recommend they paint a picture of what they will bring to a potential employer.  The picture  Shaq’s painted here is a little blurry (“a lot of different ventures”).  But since Shaq is, well Shaq, I would let it slide in his case.

But if you’re not as well known as Shaq, being specific about your:

  • Accomplishments
  • Skills
  • Problems you can solve

for an employer, business partner, or client is VITAL!

    Hilarious, I might look to connect with him. I’m not sure Shaq would need to make too many new connections though!
