In the world of business, connections mean everything. We’ve all heard the saying, “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” Well, with LinkedIn, it is a bit of both. The connections you make now in current jobs may help pave the way toward new, exciting opportunities and/or careers. And, when a tough situation comes along, such as loss of employment, you can be certain that your network will be who you will count on for your next job. In fact, an Adler Group survey back in February 2016 stated that 65-75% of job seekers found their next job through networking (only 10% found a job on a job board). Here are some other interesting stats to consider from LinkedIn (LI):
• 93% Employers Have Used LI
• 89% Hiring Managers Have Used LI to Hire
• 94% Recruiters Used LI to Vet Candidates
• Executives from all Fortune 500 Are on LI
• 90 of Fortune 100 are on LI
Even books for job-seekers such as What Color is Your Parachute, by Richard Nelson Bolles, which has been in print since 1970, has dedicated a chapter to LinkedIn.
So you’ve followed the trend and you created your LinkedIn profile…now what? Here are some useful tips on how to get the most from your LinkedIn page. http://socialmediaatoz.com/2016/10/04/ok-im-on-linkedin-now-what/ #LinkedIn #SocialMediaManagement #JobSeekers
