Looking for a job can be very stressful even for people that do have degrees and great experience on their resume. Linkedin is great social media platform for people to upload everything about themselves and to interact with people to find the job that best fits them.
The virtual professional network allows people to upload their resume, education, volunteer experience, skills, accomplishments, and interests. That way while you are looking for a job, people can view your profile and contact you if they are interested in you for a job. You could pick and choose whom you connect with, and also connect with the people you have things in common with.
Over the years Linkedin has become an essential personal branding tool. Its the ultimate personal platform to give you the best opportunities to increase your visibility to people and the community around you.
