laptop on deskWhen the admissions board receives your application for an MBA, they will look at your social media posts. The good news is your LinkedIn might have the most weight in their decision. The better news is that you can do something to improve your chances.

To pass admissions for an MBA in Singapore, the board will be looking for traits such as consistency across your online accounts.

Do you appear as your application reads? How does your LinkedIn fit in with your personality? Will you represent the school well if they pick you? Here are some things you can do on LinkedIn to stand a better chance in admissions.

1. Get appropriate recommendations.

LinkedIn is your professional representation. Your recommendations matter. However, soliciting for recommendations can be difficult, and people often tend to only ask their friends.

Unless your friend is an expert in the field you want to pursue, avoid asking their recommendation. People who have supervised you are better qualified when it comes to recommendations on LinkedIn.

2. Include achievements you can quantify.

Do not write statements such as “I developed discipline.” It is much better to weave metrics that are quantifiable into your profile. For example, highlight how much you increased revenues of the organisation you worked at. Cite accolades and awards you have received.

3. Engage the community of your target school.

It is wise to follow the school you hope to join. Be keen to read their posts to get insights into how they operate. As an extra benefit, you will be able to research the programme and keep posted on any announcement relevant to you as an applicant.

While LinkedIn is a professional platform, it is also a social media platform. You can’t ignore the success social media offers. Interact with people and groups that lead conversations in your target areas. It will give you an opportunity to demonstrate your expertise and set yourself apart.
