Nora Ephron had a great title for her book of essays – “I Remember Nothing.”
But some things should be easy to remember. Namely, your LinkedIn profile.
You can set up a shortcut or custom URL. Here’s mine: http://linkedin.com/in/LaurieKretchmar
Unless somebody’s already claimed it, yours can be http://linkedin.com/in/YourName – You might need to add a middle initial or make some other modification if your name is already taken.
Here’s how to create your easy-to-memorize custom URL:
Log in to LinkedIn.com (if you can remember your password).
Go to “Profile” (it’s at the top of the page).
Select “Edit Profile.”
Click “Edit” next to the URL under your profile photo.
Look for the section called “Public Profile” – click on “Customize your public profile URL.”
Type in your name. Proofread.
Click “Set custom URL.”
