There are a few things we know for sure:
* The world of work has irreversibly changed
* job search is no fun
* networking is the foundation of your career success and…
* LinkedIn is now as fundamental to a job search as a resume ever was
So where does this leave you if LinkedIn is always evolving, you’re ready to hustle, or you are still employed and need to be discrete about a job search?
For better or worse, the LinkedIn interface and its features are always evolving, and it’s just not that intuitive to use. Like many other social media tools, there are just so many bells and whistles it’s hard to keep up with them.

Thank you to MyBlogGuest for being a Titanium Sponsor in The 7th Annual JobMob Guest Blogging Contest. Please support them!

Ann Smarty: With us, you are no longer alone! One of the hugest challenges of blogging is that it takes time to be heard and not everyone can just keep writing to yourself without feeling support. Our community is the perfect place for such bloggers because we teach how to build the community of returning contributors.
