Advantages to Using LinkedIn

Written by Nancy McCreery

While most of us participate in social networking through such websites as Facebook and Twitter, your information on those sites might be a little more focused on the personal side. If you are looking for a place to connect with old and new colleagues, LinkedIn is just the right social networking website for you. (As a Certified Linkedin Expert I should know!) It lets you put the personal life aside and present yourself in a more professional manner, along with retaining your business image. Think of it as an extensive online resume.
Linkedin allows you easily to find past employers, employees, colleagues or companies you worked for as well as search for opportunities at other companies. It is a great way to renew your connections with people with whom you’ve lost touch with along the way.
Networking through Linkedin with old colleagues doesn’t only serve the purpose of bringing back coffee talk chat. Chances are your old co-worker now has new colleagues and new connections. Use this to your advantage; let them open new doors and new opportunities for you!
Take a few minutes out of your busy day and check out Linkedin if you have not done so already and let me know your thoughts!
