Dear Lifehacker, I’ve nearly finished my university degree in engineering, so keeping my LinkedIn up to date is of course crucial. But I wonder, how skilled should I be to list a skill on LinkedIn? For example, when it comes to renewable energy, I know more than the average person. But when compared to people working in the industry, I probably don’t not that much! So what shouldn’t I include on my profile?
Hi Lifehacker, What would you do if you are in a particular role in your company (mine is web designer) but you haven’t been assigned enough tasks to improve your skills and experiences? There haven’t been enough design tasks in my role and I’ve ended up doing all sorts of other tasks. I’d like to seek another job but I lack confidence since I haven’t been able to build on my skills here. Any suggestions?
