Mention LinkedIn to most people, especially college students, and they’ll tell you that they capitalize on it when they need a new job. However, this social media powerhouse can help them build a professional network. And, it can also help its users to share information and learn from others.

    • Telling your story with this element
    • The non-verbal banner headline

  • The about section
    • Go beyond the “who” in this section
    • Focusing on the what, the why and those other storytelling elements
    • Writing in the first person
What are LinkedIn’s hidden aspects?
  • Professional research
  • Networking
  • Sharing professional status
  • Research
  • And of course, finding that next opportunity
How do I build an effective network on LinkedIn?
  • Defining a purpose for adding a new contact
  • Research the tie back to connect with someone
  • How not to overdo a connection note
  • A good timeline to foster a connection
How do I share content?
