LinkedIn’s cover Story is the new Head Shot
This new feature from LinkedIn is one of the most interesting features to be released in the last couple of years - the 30 seconds video resume from LinkedIn. This new product will shake up the head shot landscape and get you hired FASTER. Read until the end for a special offer.
One fresh spring morning, I received a link from my friend Alex , a business consultant and Agile expert, about a new feature that appeared on his LinkedIn Profile. Alex, always being a first adopter of anything, immediately jumped on the occasion and asked my opinion on the matter.
Tell me…what is exactly a LinkedIn cover story?
Released in March 2021, the cover story is a 30 second vertical video of you, explaining who you are and what you do. It opens a lot of possibilities to express who you are to potential leads and hiring managers. On top of making sure you have a great headshot (you can book your appointment here), the cover story will be a great supplement to send a great elevator pitch that will create an impact and get you your next job or contract.
What I learned in making a cover story
Because it was my first cover story, I spent a lot of time with Alex prepping his script and how the video will look.
There are a few things that I learned while creating this for him:
