Six Apps for Enhancing LinkedIn Profiles
You can find an app store on just about any platform now-a-days, and LinkedIn is no exception.
LinkedIn Applications are designed to enrich a user’s profile, but for those of you that haven’t rummaged through the networking site’s apps, here are a few that have caught our attention:
Show off your blog content! This app syncs Wordpress blog posts with LinkedIn profiles. Additionally, blog posts can be filtered with a LinkedIn tag, in order to make sure content is relevant to the LinkedIn’s professional community.
Share presentations and documents within the LinkedIn network. This app allows users to upload content such as portfolios, resumes, conference talks, PDFs, marketing and sales presentations. The app supports many different formats and allows YouTube videos and audio to be embedded into presentations. It is available and can sync with both LinkedIn and Facebook social networks.
This is a great app for resume building. It allows users to showcase creative work by uploading their portfolio to the Behance Network, which is a free online platform for creative professionals. Then, users can create an unlimited number of multimedia projects and select which ones are displayed on their profile.
The Google Presentation app allows users to showcase presentations directly on LinkedIn profiles. Users can either upload a Powerpoint file or use Google’s free online application to create a presentation. The app presents a great avenue for visually displaying professional accomplishments.
Find out what your peers have been reading. This app allows LinkedIn users to share their favorite books with each other. Once the app is installed, users can add books that they are currently reading, planning to read and have already read.
Huddle Worspaces enables different workspaces to be created for different groups of connections. By separating connections, LinkedIn users can choose to share specific content with specific people. This app is great for teams that are working together to exchange documents and ideas.
