In this day and age, LinkedIn can be your best job-finding friend...if you know how to use it properly. Think of LinkedIn both as a living online resume and a networking tool.
As your career advances, you can quickly and easily update your profile to reflect new accomplishments, positions, awards, and experiences. Regularly updating your profile shows recruiters and potential employers that you're not stagnant in your career.
Think of LinkedIn as a platform for a mutually beneficial relationship. When you endorse another therapist or write a review of a clinic or staffing agency, they'll be likely to return the favor. With over 380 million LinkedIn members, it can be tough to stand out. The more endorsements, reviews, and connections you have, the more professional and credible you look to the online world.
Take advantage of the ease of online networking. If a second or third connection on LinkedIn has several mutual connections, consider connecting with them to boost your profile. Remember, every connection you make has the potential to open doors down the road.
That's what networking is all about!
