The 10 Commandments of LinkedIn

The 10 Commandments of LinkedIn

I’ve written A LOT about LinkedIn, so my 10 commandments should be familiar to you, but for fun, I’ve put them together here:

1. Thou shalt have a professional image on thy LinkedIn profile, for this is how thy future employers, business partners and peers will judge you.
