Makeup Artist Aisha Campbell has added a variety of samples of her work to her LinkedIn profile. As you can see, Aisha has added beautiful photos from her portfolio to her profile so viewers can see what she's accomplished, rather than just read about it.

She says "The visual content I uploaded has gotten great reviews from those that I have shared my LinkedIn profile with and I'm sure it is one of the reasons clients choose to work with me."

Tips from Aisha
To my fellow LinkedIn members I would say, be very detailed in your descriptions. If you have visual content, share as much as you can and a variety of it. In that way, your potential clients, bosses, colleagues and workmates can not only see what you have done, but what you can do. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.

Personal Chef Paul Maloney spent 16 years in the Navy and he was able to use LinkedIn to navigate a dramatically different employment landscape when he rejoined civilian life.

Paul is using LinkedIn to showcase a full and detailed history of his jobs, awards and experience, including pictures of his food and events he has participated in.

Tips from Paul
Many employers now also accept your LinkedIn profile as a job application. This makes the process so much easier and saves a lot of time! I can tell you personally that every time I have applied for a job with my profile, I have at least received an email or call response. To me, this shows that they were interested in what they saw on my profile, took the time to read it and maybe even shared it with others.

Tips from Lyndsay
Using LinkedIn's rich media feature to add visual content to your profile will make it unique and separate it from others in your industry. Photos, presentations, and links to your work will enhance the fantastic achievements you've already included in your profile. As the old saying goes, "Don't just tell them, show them."
