Twenty years ago our reputation was enough to stand out in a networking world based on word-of-mouth. Today, whilst this still matters, we all have a digital profile accessible by anyone who cares to use Google. [Safe to assume everyone you meet WILL google you]
6Prog profiles are used for Project Managers to choose a Network-Recruiter. In this case your audience is a time-poor customer in need of expert advice. You won’t get two chances!
What should you put in your profile?
- history of success
- markets you know about
- where you have deep subject matter knowledge
- how many people you have real contact and hold relationships
- what service you can offer (NLP interviewing?)
- who you are (do you have integrity?) Will your old clients act as referees?
