LinkedIn has just updated its flagship iOS app with significant enhancements to profiles.
With its redesigned profiles on mobile, LinkedIn seeks to “help you showcase your story for more opportunities.”
On iPhone, you can easily edit your profile thanks to the new guided editing flow and see your favorite schools’ pages right within the app. On iPad, you can see other LinkedIn users’ interests and the companies, influencers, and news that they follow.
Most notably, on both iPhone and iPad editions of LinkedIn, you can check out who’s viewed your profile and what you have in common with others, which could come in handy as conversation starters and icebreakers during meetings.
Your LinkedIn Profile is your professional identity of record. Its also the heart of LinkedIn. Your new profile helps you tell your story to other professionals when theyre looking for you on the go. If you arent a master storyteller, well let you know whats missing and how you can add it. Youll also enjoy discovering new insights about other professionals with the in common and endorsements sections we added. Theyre great ice breakers you can use when you meet someone for the first time, so you can talk about something other than the weather.
