Since being created and developed in 2003, LinkedIn has become one of the premiere social networking tools for business. No matter what job market you’re part of (or if you have no job at all), creating a profile is becoming a necessary step to move up the corporate ladder. If you are unemployed and looking for work, many businesses and companies post jobs on LinkedIn. Most people use LinkedIn to identify potential job opportunities, connect with other students, alumni, colleagues and past co-workers. A LinkedIn profile allows you to create professional and polished online presence and serves as a tool for you to share your skills, education and career interests with potential employers. Users also use LinkedIn to join various groups and stay up to date with employment trends and what’s new with employers in your field. Outside from using LinkedIn to post a job, employers can use it as a social media tool to find potential employers. Thousands of people receive job offers or interview requests every day without showing any interest at all. If you have a top-notch profile, you could be one of those people on LinkedIn to get a job offer in your inbox. So how do you create a LinkedIn profile that really stands out?
