Having a LinkedIn profile is important if you are interested in taking advantage of basic networking to find a job, or just network with others in your field.  In some cases, the employer may find you before you find them. Here are some tips:

  • Import your current resume to quickly fill out your profile.
  • Incorporate widgets for your blog, presentations, etc.
  • Request recommendations!
  • Write recommendations!!
  • Pay attention to the "People You May Know" section on the "Home" page to build your network.
  • Look through your networks' connections lists to see if there are people you might know or what to know.
  • Join or create groups and get connected to other people with similar education or interests. 
  • Answer other people's Questions in LinkedIn's Answers section to become listed as an "Expert" in that area
