how to get a vanity on Linkedin | Linkedin profile writer | Linkedin profile writing serviceWe always recommend that you secure yourself a vanity URL on LinkedIn when searching for a job, this should be one of the first things you do.  Not only does a vanity URL on your Linkedin profile, CV and business cards look more professional, it’s easier to remember a vanity URL than a standard one with a long string of numbers that mean nothing.  Not only that, by using a vanity URL on Linkedin, it means you’ll have a better chance of being found by name when recruiters perform searches.

For example: https://www.linkedin.com/company/professional-cv-writer is easier to remember than www.linkedin.com/in/professional-cv-writer/65/3545698/259 (< the second link doesn’t work, it’s an example only)

Linkedin is all about building a robust network of industry and professional contacts, so using a vanity URL can really boost your ability to connect more easily.
