If you are interested in successfully managing your career, you must have a profile on LinkedIn! Described as a business-oriented social networking site, LinkedIn has more than 30 million registered users spanning 150 industries. Their philosophy, “Relationships matter. Your professional relationships are key to your professional success.”
As a job search tool, LinkedIn offers increased visibility and connections and the opportunity to be found by employers or recruiters. Not unlike your resume, this is a tool providing you with the opportunity to sell yourself. It will be effective if it is professional, accurate and focussed. The information you provide is key to achieving your career goals. But if you do not provide details regarding what it is that you are looking for and what it is that you have to offer, you will miss out on potential opportunities.
