Insideview.ie guest post by Janet O'Carroll.
Part of the Digital Media module at the Limerick Institute of Technology (LIT) involves creating a peer review. This post considers the LinkedIn profile of Gillan Piveteau. Gillan created the profile as part of an assignment from the Business Degree with Sports Management in LIT.
Gillan set up his initial profile well. He arranged his achievements, awards and skills in a professional manner. He wrote a clear summary about himself and describes his aspirations in a manner that gives a great insight to his personality. His profile picture is a clear and well-lit headshot of him well-dressed.
My only critique on his profile would be to go into further detail about his studies. I feel it would benefit him to project more of what he studies in his degree and the broad range of skills and knowledge he gains from his course. This would allow employers to see what areas Gillan would be suitable for as I know that many of the modules he partakes in don't solely apply to sport but also to business which is a broad, constantly growing sector.
A screen capture (above) of Gillan Piveteau's profile shows his profile summary. You can see what he says about himself and his hopes following college but this is where I feel he should have expanded more.
