Using LinkedIn to Advance Your Career
LinkedIn is the most powerful job search tool today and many agree that it is considered unprofessional not to be on this social network for professionals. An estimated 130,000 recruiters and many of the largest employers use LinkedIn to recruit candidates for employment. You can leverage the strength of the LinkedIn platform and extend your reach with a search engine optimized profile and the right kind of activity.
A networking strategy that combines face-to-face and social interaction is consistently cited as the #1 way to get a new job. Networking is effective because an estimated 80% of open positions are not advertised. LinkedIn enables you to get in front of the decision makers and is also a very powerful information gathering tool. A common misconception is that you need to be conducting a job search to be an active participant on LinkedIn — that is not the case. While the social platform certainly can help you get hired, it also provides the opportunity to network professionally with peers and clients to advance your career. It is advisable to grow your network of connections and build real relationships before you need it so that your network will be ready to help you should you decide to launch a job search.
