How to Write a KILLER LinkedIn Profile Raffle Drawing!

rak-week-174x300Did you know that last week (February 9-15, 2015) was International Random Acts of Kindness Week? Neither did I, until a woman named Ann Terry Gilman from Germany purchased my LinkedIn e-book—3 times! I wrote to Terry to find out whether she intended to purchase the book in triplicate, and she responded that no she did not, but would I please give away the two extra books to an organization in need—in honor of RAK week!

Random Acts of Kindness Life

Of course now that I know last week was RAK week, I’m thinking about whether I do enough RAKs in my life. Last week, one day I brought a smoothie to a friend who is a nurse and would miss dinner that day due to working long hours. I tried a new salmon recipe. I drove to Chicago to see people in my class person instead of attending, as I usually do, on the phone. I made 50 phone calls for people to assist on the Transform Training while the other people in my group were making 15-20 calls each. I brought my teddy bear to yoga class and talked to people I would not normally have talked to.

I did all these things without knowing it was RAK week! Did you perform random acts of kindness last week too? Here are some ideas:


Feel free to take these ideas and run with them on any day or week of the year! When recently have you put a smile on someone’s face or contributed to a good cause? Please share about it below!

    Mission: The Student Counselling Team at Macquarie University has a focus on helping students go into/return to the work-place and the Team (Melinda) made it clear that LinkedIn has to be an essential and effective part of my job-seeking strategy.

    Thank you for some great advice.
    I’ve now established profile access as:
