LinkedIn Profile Services

How Does the LinkedIn Profile Writing Process Work?

  • More information on our LinkedIn Packages and rates can be found on our LinkedIn Profile Packages page.
  • We begin the LinkedIn Profile writing process by booking an appointment with your writer to discuss how to complete the iCareerSolutions Questionnaire/Matrix™. Upon receipt of your completed document, your writer will begin working on your first draft and provide you the first draft within 5 business days.
  • we conduct some research on the best keywords for your industry.we will send you a proposed headline and summary. Once complete, you copy and paste the newly created content into your profile. We do not log into your LinkedIn profile to make changes for you, as this is a violation of LinkedIn’s terms of service.

What Is The Difference Between the LinkedIn 101 Session & the LinkedIn Profile Development Service?

During the LinkedIn 101 Session, we will explain the importance of LinkedIn and some of the basics about how LinkedIn works.we will also explain how you would use the information from your resume to create your LinkedIn Profile. And how to increase your search ranking by using LinkedIn algorithms. LinkedIn Profile Writing Service is where we actually write your profile for you and keyword-optimize your profile to increase your chance of being seen by recruiters.
If you decide to have us write your LinkedIn Profile as part of your package, we would not begin until we have completed the resume and cover letter documents, so feel free to purchase the initial package and during LinkedIn 101 Session you can decide whether you would like to add on the LinkedIn Profile Development.

Will You Update My LinkedIn Profile for Me?
