What is LinkedIn?
LinkedIn is a social network, used for professional networking. The platform allows job seekers to post their CVs and employers to post jobs.
A profile on LinkedIn can serve as a resume, complete with work experience, accomplishments, recommendations, and referrals from colleagues. You can search for and apply for jobs in the Jobs section on LinkedIn.
LinkedIn is used to grow contacts and find career opportunities, as well as let recruiters, know that you’re looking for a job at the moment.
LinkedIn can also be used for building a professional reputation by making posts and commenting on other people’s posts.
There is a subscription version of LinkedIn — LinkedIn Premium. It offers more features, such as online professional development classes, insights into who’s viewing your profile, and the ability to instant message anyone on the platform, even if they’re not in your network.
