"Complete Your Profile" and you could win an iPad2!

Complete your AIA KnowledgeNet profile by December 12, 2012 at 12:00 pm Eastern Time and submit the entry form via email to be entered to win one 16GB iPad2 with Wi-Fi. Learn how the points add up to complete your profile on the FAQ page.

 

Completing your profile is as easy as 1, 2, 3! 

  1. You start out with up to 30 points, of the 100 points you need to complete your profile, based on the information the AIA already has in the database.
  2. First, get a jump start on completing your profile by directly importing your LinkedIn profile. Look for the “Update your information from LinkedIn®” link on your profile page.
    • The import includes your photo; your biography; your job and school histories; your honors and awards. (That’s worth up to 55 points!)
    • Don’t have a LinkedIn Profile? Just enter the information directly into your profile.
  3. Next, list your professional specialties, affiliations, and interests.  (That’s worth up to 30 points!)

How do I know my profile is complete and if I have contributed content?

When you are signed into AIA KnowledgeNet, your welcome box in the upper right corner will display “Complete Your Profile” until it is complete. After that it will display “Update Your Profile”. When you view your profile you will see all blog entries, discussion forum posts, and library entries you have contributed.

I completed my profile and contributed content before September 10, 2012. Can I enter?

Absolutely! But you must submit the entry form via email and submit a second entry form via email.
