LinkedIn – Why It Benefits You & How to Create a Profile

LinkedIn was launched in May of 2003. Having been around for over 10 years now, we see the site and its usefulness becoming stronger all the time. Metropolitan area businesses are utilizing LinkedIn while searching candidates for their openings. It is only a matter of time before rural businesses pickup on this great tool. Be ahead of the curve for your rural area by investigating and learning how to set up your LinkedIn account and maximizing the benefits for your employment career. We have provided some articles which have been posted individually on our Facebook timeline, in case you haven’t seen them, and provide them again to have all information in one stop. We are also including an excellent article on how to understand the setup of various facets of your profile. We encourage you to become engaged in this great tool for job seekers. It’s one of the ways to access the hidden job market, some employers who are registered view profiles and offer positions without having ever posted them.
