“Your network is the people who want to help you, and you want to help them, and that’s really powerful” – Reid Hoffman, founder of LinkedIn
We live in a time where it is not often possible for people to talk face to face due to safety precautions, travel restrictions, and less in-person events. Now more than ever, I believe that LinkedIn is the #1 resource to help you grow your professional network despite existing limitations.
As I search how LinkedIn describes itself, I would like to add some of my own thoughts on this:
- LinkedIn is the world’s largest professional network on the internet. This is the description of LinkedIn that I never doubt. It is an amazing platform to connect to people and expand your professional network. It may not be the largest social network that you can find but I can guarantee you that it is the most trusted and reliable network you can find for professional purposes and career expansion.
- You can use LinkedIn to find the right job or internship, connect and strengthen professional relationships, and learn the skills you need to succeed in your career. Almost every single recruiter out there is using LinkedIn to find and screen great candidates. It simply is the best place for you to get noticed and get hired and is a great way for you to showcase who you are and what you can do. Your LinkedIn profile is like a resume that anyone can review and can help present your personal brand.
The future of LinkedIn continues to be big. It will continue to grow in its influence and utility for many types of people. Do not neglect LinkedIn in your career – you’re missing out if you do! Some of my closest professional connections I have now started and continue to be maintained through LinkedIn. This can be true for you as well!
Your network can only expand as you choose to engage with others on LinkedIn!
