LinkedIn is like FaceBook for the business world, at least to me. There are plenty of authorities that need you to have a LinkedIn before ever hiring you. It says you have the smarts to create a profile that says everything you need to know to an employer. There are plenty of tips to know too. I can tell you that I know plenty of people that were not given a position, let alone continue with an interview, if no LinkedIn file was present. In class, we learned of some helpful features of this site. LinkedIn introduced the “skills and experience” feature.Pick at least 10 skills. Under “More” at the top of your profile page, pull down the menu to “skills and experience” and type a skill into the box. You could obviously spend a lot of time on this. It pays to take at least 15 minutes to list the skills you think are central to your work.
