LinkedIn will help you land your next great opportunity because most hiring managers and recruiters are already using it! Having an active and optimized LinkedIn Profile will significantly increase the chances of your discovery by various companies looking to hire people based on your skills and experience.

Your Profile not only builds trust and credibility, but it can also help you get found faster based on your skills and should focus on giving the best first impression. Every time a recruiter contacts you, you can bet that they have already looked at your Profile.

LinkedIn also offers a tremendous opportunity for virtual networking 24/7. The sooner you start networking, the better it will be down the line. Think of your LinkedIn connections as a digital Rolodex where you can access people from deep into the past, current relationships, and even invest in future relationships.

And finally, LinkedIn can help position you as a thought leader in your industry. By creating/sharing relevant content that your network craves, it is possible to create an inbound interest by decision-makers in your industry and beyond!
