Using LinkedIn Connections for Job Searching

If you’re not on LinkedIn, you should be.  Surveys consistently show that using personal connections is by far the most effective way to get–not just a job, but a good career-type job.  In the olden days executives would keep business cards in a Rolodex file. Today, they are kept digitally. With LinkedIn you have not just to your own business cards, but cards of your contacts and their contacts. You can easily have potential access to over 1 million individuals.

Basic membership at www.LinkedIn.com is free.

The video in this link from the NewGradLife blog shows how to get an interview (and, then, a job) using LinkedIn.

Jobs on LinkedIn are easier to find than you think
