Guess what position she’s in?

She is also determined to help the associates to fight for benefits that they should get for a high retention rate in the company.Now, welcome to think of three adjectives to describe you while matching with your job requirements.1.2.3.And you can look at your current LinkedIn photo now.Does the photo reflect the three adjectives you think of yourself?
If you’ve got all three, congratulations! People come to you mostly for who you are.
If only 1 or even none from the above, maybe your potential employers couldn’t get a grasp of you from the picture. Maybe it’s time for you to update the LinkedIn picture!
