Are you as credible as a CFO candidate as you think you are? I ask because I’m genuinely concerned about your online credibility and positioning.
I run a CFO Careers group on Linkedin and since it is exclusive to CFOs, I always check profiles of those requesting to join the group. Most of those profiles lend absolutely no credibility to their claim of being a Chief Financial Officer.
This month’s Futures in Finance column details my thoughts on those things that can derail your credibility on Linkedin.
– Having an incomplete profile
– Not having a branded headshot
– No network, a miniscule network, or one that does not reflect your executive status
There are others, but these are key. You can read my thoughts here.
