IF SO, WHAT DO YOU DO WITH IT?
What is LinkedIn?
Why do employers use it?
Why should you use it?
OK, YOU'VE PERSUADED ME......LETS LOOK AT THE NUTS AND BOLTS
2 WAYS OF LOOKING AT THIS
YOU CAN SEE ORGANISATIONS/PEOPLE

&

PEOPLE CAN SEE YOU


DEMO FEATURES....
GROUPS
Companies
PEOPLE SEE YOU!
Good Profile
In need of attention!
Want to take this a step further?
Advanced LinkedIn
27th November 1-2pm - Arts 1.02
To learn about potential employees (checking against CV)
Companies can put jobs on there first
Can see if you have been recommended
Assess how relevant your skills/experience are
Will this person fit?
Online professional networking site
Just had its 10 year birthday
There are 2.9 million company pages on LinkedIN
Membership grows by 2 members per second!
Apply for positions and the
employer will be able to see your
full LinkedIn profile
One strategy is to first apply to a position
you want and then send a message
to the recruiter who posted the
opportunity
Entry-level job and internship postings
Search by job role or review
postings from featured companies
Improve your visibility and career progression in a particular field
Demonstrate your skills, commitment and
initiative - showcase your work
Find voluntary or work experience to enhance your marketability
Access positions that are never advertised: the
‘hidden’ job market
Check out
LinkedIn’s Alumni Tool to see what
grads of your school are up to
Once you connect,
send customised messages (no
mass emails!) to say you’re
job-hunting.......... Ask for advice, an
informational interview, or if they
know anyone in your desired field
Be sure to complete the profile
sections designed just for students,
such as Courses, Projects,
Languages, Certifications, and
Organizations
Talk about all your
relevant experience.......

internships, extracurriculars,
part-time jobs, volunteer work, or
projects that have given you
real-world skills

Greater visibility! Requires time and effort

Virtual footprint

Think before you click! Always ask yourself “would I mind if a potential employer saw this?”

Only 1 profile; you can’t tailor it for different jobs
Avoid unfinished profiles (unprofessional)

Have to pay for some advanced features (e.g. contacting people not in network)


Use the Jobs Portal
Thank you and good luck
Why should you use it?
LinkedIn provides the opportunity to ........differentiate yourself from others

Showcase your skills & experience

Quickly identify useful contacts

Many companies put jobs on social media first

It’s easier to make contacts and break into some sectors than it used to be
Some final messages
How is Linkedin different to Facebook?
Netiquette
