What is LinkedIn?
LinkedIn has become the worlds largest social network for professional life - and if you're not on it already, you really should be.
But - perhaps more importantly - businesses and recruiters use it as a modern-day CV directory for hiring and finding new talent.
How can LinkedIn benefit you?
As everyone already knows - if you're after a new career (or just that long-deserved promotion) it's all about "the skills you can bring to the table". Taking the initiative and developing yourself and your connections makes you more valuable.
LinkedIn is brilliant for this - by connecting with industry news, colleagues, classmates, clients and suppliers.
It's also had a huge impact in recruitment and staffing too... it's extremely powerful for HR Departments and Recruiters to Search, Find and Analyse professionals in their sector - helping them find perfect people to fit their jobs (hopefully you!).
LinkedIn helps you with Connections (the people and companies you associate with on LinkedIn) and Keywords (key skills, phrases, activity and certificate information that connections and recruiters use to find you).
