I’ve been wondering why so few people include the initials of their credentials in their LinkedIn™ Profile name.  It’s such an easy way to create instant credibility!!!!

If you have an advanced degree (M.A., Ph.D.), include it in your name!   If you are a Credentialed Coach (ACC, PCC, MCC) , add it to your profile.  If you’re a licensed therapist, take credit for it: M.S.W. or M.F.T.

For Solo-Preneurs, this is a great Marketing tool because people often base their hiring decision on the service provider holding a specific credential.

For those of you who are looking for a job, this is another way to get recruiters or hiring managers to contact you instead of your competition.

Even if you’re not looking for a job, it never hurts to be contacted by a Recruiter with a better position than what you already have.  Savvy Professionals and Business Leaders take advantage of Social Media to build their careers.

And it’s so easy:  just click on Edit next to your name, add a comma and your credential initials after your name.  Then click on Save Changes.  That’s it!!!

If you want to see how to do add your credential next to your name, consider purchasing the “6 Weeks to More Success Through LinkedIn” Video E-course.
