Symbols to spice up your LinkedIn profile

LinkedIn Text SymbolsGuest Post By: Brynne Tillman

Throughout my LinkedIn training career I have worked on thousands of profile makeovers. I am always working toward ensuring that my client’s branding message is coming across, that the first impression the viewer sees is the right one and that the experience was exactly what would engage their prospect to raise their hand and say talk to me. Adding symbols was always a point of debate. Was it too goofy, too high school, too unprofessional, or did it catch the eye, bring people in, get people interested? Well, it is still the topic of discussion, but I do believe if used well and sparingly, symbols have their place on the LinkedIn profile. Below is a comprehensive list of symbols that you can quickly copy and paste in your headline, summary or anywhere else that you are looking to stand out. If you do add symbols to your profile, please share it with me, I love to see how others use them!
