3 Reasons Why you should join LinkedIn

Since its launch in 2003, LinkedIn has widely been considered the benchmark professional and jobs networking social media platform. But is the famous-among-professionals jobs and social media site still relevant, or a clout that passed with the clouds?

Emploi offers three reasons why every professional should join Linkedin.

A Job platform

The first time Jane, a marketing specialist joined Linkedin, she was excited but also extremely anxious. Anxious because her two years’ experience in marketing seemed trivial compared to all the marketing specialists on LinkedIn. THE International projects, the big brands they had handled gave her frets.

Jane wanted to know what they do so she connected with most of them within the first week. She was also actively participating in polls, discussions and often shared posts that interested her. One month later, she got  an email from one of the leading ecommerce companies in the country about a job opening.

“We have an opening for a marketing specialist at xxx and having checked your Linkedin profile, we think you might be a good fit. If interested, let’s have a 30 minutes chat to tell you more about the role….”

Massive recruitment happens through LinkedIn, it’s the professionals’ marketplace so are your products (skills) properly and strategically displayed for the willing buyers (recruiters)?

Having a LinkedIn account also means that you can use the site to research jobs openings, hiring companies, interviewers, Recruitment and HR Consultancy firms,

 

Networking with other professionals

I stand to be corrected but I doubt there is a bigger, more effective professionals’ networking site in the world.

A professional can use LinkedIn to connect with current and former colleagues and link to people you meet at LinkedIn networking events, conferences, LinkedIn Groups, Pages etc.

It’s the social media version of a business card. Infact in most instances, as long you know the first name and or company, you can connect with a person.

A learning platform

The numerous courses, seminars and conferences on Linkedin are a learning avenue for any professional who is keen on self-development.

A lot of learnings can also be derived from other professionals’ posts and or comments, if you are following the right people.

So, what are you waiting for? Join Linkedin today, learn, connect and strive in your career.
