"He couldn't get an internship because he was getting mistaken for a drug dealer with the same name," said co-founder Patrick Ambron. "He couldn't even get calls back and found out that was the problem."

Include a photo
Profiles with photos are more trusted than those without
Complete your whole profile

Don't forget to add links to your blog / portfolio / Twitter / Pinterest etc.
Think about key search words employers would use if they were:
looking for

looking for graduates, interns or students for work placements
Edit your headline
your headline will default to your current job title...
...but this can be edited to include further information and keywords

by default, your profile URL will have random numbers
customise this to have your full name, then add to:
business cards
your email signature
your bios on other sites
Add relevant skills to your profile
this makes it easy for connections to public endorse your skills and expertise
Ask for recommendations
ask people you have worked for to give you a recommendation
if you are in a position to recommend somebody who has worked for you then do so
Make connections
connect with colleagues, recruiters and other professionals you have met
search by name, company, school,
email contacts or group members
develop relevant 2nd and 3rd degree connections

engage in discussion
share useful resources, links and articles etc.
