We now offer several options for helping you with LinkedIn profiles. The choice depends on how you are going to use LinkedIn as well as how much you want to invest in your profile.
Currently, our LinkedIn services are only offered to clients that we have worked with on their resumes.
Choose one of these if you are primarily interested in have a professional presence on LinkedIn. In other words, will you look good to someone who looks you up by your name or finds you in some other way. This is not about “being found” but about “looking good”.
LinkedIn Review: Review your LinkedIn profile with Yellow Brick Path’s principal and founder as part of a comprehensive resume program. This takes about 15-20 minutes and is designed to give you pointers that you can implement to make sure you aren’t embarrassing yourself.
Foundation or Foundation Plus LinkedIn Profile: Work by phone and email with our LinkedIn Specialist to repurpose your new resume to your LinkedIn profile taking into account LinkedIn best practices. With the Foundation Plus option, our Specialist can work with you on some of the special features that LinkedIn offers such as heading banners or attachments of projects, videos, or work samples. Both of these options are designed for you to get up on Linked in quickly with a professional presentation, keeps you from having to learn the ins-and-outs of working in LinkedIn and its ever-changing environment, and saves you time – even if it is just in entering the information.
