LinkedIn has been considered a revolutionary social media platform, as it is business and employment orientated and is home to the world’s largest professional network with around 400 million users. It is becoming increasingly popular with employers, as more and more are turning to LinkedIn to help them find a suitable candidate for a job role. It is considered the future of recruitment and that is just one of the many reasons a graduate should create a profile!
Showcase Your Skills and Experience:
On LinkedIn profiles there are a variety of sections provided where you can talk freely about yourself. These include your current and past work experience, volunteering, honors you have received, what languages you speak, your skills and much more. Think of it as an online CV! You can really sell yourself on this website, highlighting to potential employers your relevant experience and strengths that you can apply in a business setting. There are even ‘endorsement’ and ‘recommendation’ features on the website, validating your skillset and increasing your employability.
