  • Include your biggest wins from the past year in your description.
  • Add any awards, accolades, or volunteer opportunities from the past year.
  • Update your profile with a relevant photo.
  • Update your general bio.
  • Connect with new coworkers and connections you’ve made in the past year.
  • Endorse a few coworkers in hopes that they’ll return the favor.
  • Write a recommendation for someone who made a big impact on your career success in the last year.
  • Share a status update, or comment on a few other people’s updates.
