How to utilise LinkedIn effectively

So you are out of work and looking at new job search avenues? LinkedIn is the place to be. With over 457 million active users it is the largest growing professional social media platform worldwide.

Here's a few more statistics for you :-

57% of companies have an active LinkedIn company page 

90% of recruiters, hiring managers and potential decision makers are actively sourcing candidates on the site and most are SOLELY utilising this platform as their key advertising tool.

You are crazy not to get among the madness! Gone are the days of relying on SEEK and Career One. Once you have created a profile you can add connections in similar industry types, follow companies and be notified of job vacancies that match with your skill set and search for articles and blog postings related to your interests. You can view hundreds of current job vacancies with a single click and you can also join job search groups filled with hiring managers looking for staff!

Being a professional networking site you need to create a professional profile showcasing your relevant skills and experience. At the end of the day this is your personal brand and basically your "online resume."
