How many times have you seen trrible spalling erors or grammir mistaken that spoil an otherwise good profile or post?
Too often, is the answer. And it makes the author look careless or ignorant.
Don't be that person.
There are at time of writing 365,823 people calling themselves a 'Manger' on LinkedIn. Don't be one of them.
Check your work before you publish.
For your profile:
- Write in a separate editor, and then sit back with a printout and a pen to check that it all makes sense.
- Hand it to a friend, colleague or professional editor and ask them to check it through.
When adding an update:
- Use a browser style or spellchecking add-on such as Grammarly. I use Firefox's free spellchecking add-on with a UK or US English dictionary.
You'll be surprised how often what you thought was perfect, is imperfect. Or where you can simplify something you've made sound far too damn complex.
So do a check first, and then upload to your profile, or your post.
