Tips for creating an awesome profile
Over the last decade LinkedIn has become important as an online resumé, job hunting tool and personal branding tool.
LinkedIn is the world's largest professional networking site, with more than 400 million members. It's a virtual "resume" that includes details about your education, professional interests, skills, and experience.
Why should you use LinkedIn?
More than 90 percent of recruiters use LinkedIn when hiring. It also allows you to manage your professional online identity, build your network, explore career options and view the profiles of professionals in your field.
