Nothing succeeds like success

I think that adage is true. Companies tend to hire people who have already proven to be successful in the past.

The key, then, is to write a LinkedIn profile that highlights specifically how you succeeded in past positions. The way to do this is to provide numbers and facts, such as how much business you brought in or how you were able to reduce costs for your department, etc.

Just listing previous positions without clearly stating how you actually performed in those positions, might be less convincing and not do you justice.
