Data from LinkedIn-ites

This data was collected by LinkedIn Salary, which gains data from LinkedIn members. LinkedIn also suggests a few ways to amp up your professional networking presence.

Always be updating

First, update your LinkedIn profile.

Make sure the photo and current work info is up to date.

Second, kick things up a notch by learning a new skill.

This can increase your salary potential.

Also, it aids in helping you stand out from the competition.

Be organized and flexible

Third, do you homework.

Take the time to decide what you want from your next job.

Do this by making up a list of priorities and running those against research of a company to see the compatibility.

Fourth, LinkedIn suggests you be open to change. If one of your goals is to amp up your salary, be willing to look at other fields other than your current one.

Connect with who you know

Next, make sure you’re keeping in touch with your connections. Potentially making a career switch sometimes requires having an “in.”

Lastly, be committed to your next move. If you’re not willing to put in the effort, you’ll never find the results.
