Welcome to the January 2017 Newsletter,
If you haven’t seen it yet, LinkedIn has made major updates to the desktop version of LinkedIn bringing it into alignment with the Mobile App. Well, if you’ve ever heard me comment on the app or seen my posts in the last week, you’ll know I am not impressed by this. I have always disliked and disregarded the LinkedIn profile on the app.
Over the next couple of weeks, I will be creating new training to show you how to use the LinkedIn profile plus updating my online resources including the profile template I provide freely.
In the meantime, I’ve attached below a quick overview of my latest posts and updates on the changes that might interest you. I’ve also included an article that shows you the new layout with commentary in case you haven’t seen them yet.
Personally, I haven’t had the update yet, and if you haven’t either, you can be sure you will have by the 31st March.
If you don’t like the changes, please do comment on my articles or send me a message. I am working hard to campaign with LinkedIn that the platform is more than about finding your next job opportunity because it seems, that although the platform evolved in 2009, LinkedIn hasn’t caught up yet and have an identity issue!
Below is the summary. If you would like to stay up to date with changes and receive previews to my new content, then please click here.

The new LinkedIn desktop redesign is something LinkedIn have invested heavily in. Building from the ground up, their aim has been to match the desktop to their new mobile app. The idea is to provide a more intuitive, faster platform that creates value for us, the user, by providing seamless access to more relevant professional conversations, content and opportunities.
