Finally, I’ve come across the best and most simple breakdown of how and why to use LinkedIn. In this “A Visual Guide to LinkedIn for Job Hunters,” there is a drill-down map of the various ways to use LinkedIn to expand your networking opportunities and look for a job. I’ve never seen an explanation of LinkedIn quite so simple and easy to follow.
As most (if not all, haha) of my clients know, I’m a huge fan of LinkedIn, and the opportunities that arise from there. If you are in a job search situation nowadays, not being a part of social/professional networking sites such as LinkedIn can actually be detrimental to your career search. So, if you haven’t signed up, do so now. If you aren’t active on the site, I strongly encourage you to log on now and get active. (And yes, I take my own advice: here is my own LinkedIn profile. I’m happy to connect with all of my readers and clients.)
In addition, Applicant.com‘s blog seems informative and chock-full of interesting articles of information. Thanks Applicant, for the great road map to LinkedIn!
