LinkedIn might be the single most powerful networking tool available and it is miraculously 100% free to access all over the world. LinkedIn is more than just a social media platform. It’s where motivated professionals come together to share information, promote their accomplishments, and make big career moves. LinkedIn is also where recruiters come to post jobs, scout candidates, and vet applicants. If you’re in the market for an internship or job in the near future, having a LinkedIn profile is a necessary first step. Seasoned career professionals know that having a profile isn’t enough though. Using LinkedIn to create and maintain connections is an invaluable resource for growing as a professional and a necessary networking tool in the job search process.
