Good episode? Give it some love!
LinkedIn for doctors - why do you need it? Can LinkedIn help you get a nonclinical job? There are so many reasons doctors should use LinkedIn, but somehow, a lot of doctors don’t use LinkedIn. And because many doctors don’t use LinkedIn, they also don’t know how to use it well. I know the idea of taking on yet another social media platform can be daunting. So, if you’re looking for the most popular LinkedIn tips (LinkedIn tips that actually matter for physician careers) - this encore mashup is for you.

In this episode of The Career Rx we’ll discuss:

  • The importance of your profile - especially the ‘headline’ and ‘about’ sections
  • Why endorsements matter - both who endorses you, and for what [and how to cultivate this easily]
  • What “Open to Work” is and the pros/cons of using it


Today’s episode is a mashup of three popular episodes that explore how LinkedIn can help doctors land a career change, a promotion, or more opportunities. 

By the end of this episode, you’ll know how to build a success profile, why and how to  focus on  endorsements, and ways to get noticed on LinkedIn (including whether “Open to Work” is right for you).
