Ace Your Profile

You know what?
You're pretty great! (yes, you). 

Connect is built for people to get to know each other, and your profile is a great way to get those conversations started. How do you ace your profile? Tell us about yourself!

Things you definitely want to include: 
  • Picture (because you're much better looking than the grey avatar we've selected as your back up) 
  • Bio (so we know what you like to do! For an extra challenge: don't settle for hum-drum.)
  • Pronouns (so we know how to best address you)
  • Location/city (so you can share
Want to easily build your networks and search the directory for connections? 
Include your areas of expertisevolunteer interests, and industry

A quick note on privacy:
You've got the power to show what feels comfortable for you. Display information for your contacts (the people you've connected with), members only (anyone who's joined Connect), the general public, or only you. Click on the "My Account" tab on your profile, then "Privacy Settings." Make your selections for each component and then click save. 

Finally - we know that everyone is always growing, adapting, and evolving. Your profile should change with you! Make as many updates as you'd like, as often as you need. Maybe you want to start with the basics and add more later - cool! Maybe you've got the perfect profile game already - awesome! We're here for both of those and everything in between. 

If you have questions, comments, or ideas on how to make a profile even better, share them in the comments. 
Stay awesome,
