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
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
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
Talk about all your
part-time jobs, volunteer work, or
projects that have given you
Greater visibility! Requires time and effort
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?
