LinkedIn is a powerful online networking and information tool. It can help build a large network of contacts and track them as they move through their career. LinkedIn is a resource to help you stay in touch with relevant industry information, keep up with local changes and learn online for your own professional development.
Companies and recruiters now routinely use LinkedIn to find candidates through advertising and by searching through the millions of online profiles on the platform. You could miss out on these opportunities if you haven't optimised your LinkedIn profile
