Why Aren't You Using LinkedIn?

Published Tuesday, June 28, 2011 2:34 PM

More than 100 million people are using social media platform LinkedIn. Why aren't you?

In a tough job market, networking through social media is critical. LinkedIn allows job hunters, and even those not actively seeking work, to display their work and credentials to colleagues and recruiters alike.

Looking for a Job?

LinkedIn offers job hunters more than just terrific networking a click away. The service allows individuals to search geographically for contacts in HR departments and within specific industries. LinkedIn also allows users to follow what's happening at companies where a prospective candidate is looking. For more tips for optimizing LinkedIn, read Expert Tips For Using LinkedIn. 

Making a Career Switch?

Career changers can use LinkedIn as a bridge to a new industry. The service lets users easily alert their network of a desired shift and the Group Directory and search features allows for research on the trends and job-openings in your desired field. For more, read Change is in the Air: 7 LinkedIn Tips for Career Changers. 

Are You an Older Worker?

Don't let a job hunt fall prey to ageism. Demonstrate up-to-date tech skills with an active online personal brand. Many recruiters and career coaches view LinkedIn as the ultimate resource for job hunters. For the older worker, actively participating in LinkedIn shows relevancy and range.

I needed to draft you one very small earmrk to be able to thank you very much as before on the gorgeous pointers you have contributed at this time. This is really shockingly open-handed of you to present publicly what exactly a lot of people would have distributed as an electronic book to get some bucks for themselves, specifically considering that you might have done it if you ever wanted. The solutions additionally worked as a fantastic way to know that other people have similar keenness really like my own to understand a good deal more with respect to this condition. I am sure there are numerous more pleasurable opportunities in the future for individuals that view your blog post.
