LinkedIn is increasingly becoming the "norm" for those seeking employment, as well as employers seeking employees. The idea behind LinkedIn is simple enough...not only to showcase a person's professional attributes, but to connect them, in multiple ways. There is even a "job search" section on the page that allows people to find careers in their field of work in their area. With LinkedIn leading the way for professionals, young and old, it is no wonder the company is revolutionizing "professional media." For more information on LinkedIn's culture, click here.
Many employers prefer using LinkedIn to browse future and current employee profiles. Employers also tend to prefer accepting job applications through LinkedIn as opposed to other "job search" sites. LinkedIn is leading the way for professionals, young and old.
Whether you're connected to other professionals as a "1st connect" (meaning you directly added them, know them, etc.) or as a "3rd connect" (a friend of a friend's page), the professional network at people's fingertips using LinkedIn is unlimited, with vast possibilities and endless opportunities.
