I know there are many social networking sites out there but let me be honest- Facebook is really the only one I am familiar with. Sometimes I find that I am only interested in the things that I am comfortable with. So when I saw Professor Barbara Nixon’s blog about LinkedIn, I was not interested. As I started reading, though, I realized that the website could actually be helpful when it comes time to find a job.
One thing that I especially liked when I read about LinkedIn, is that people can see recommendations from past employees or professors. It seems as though this website can only help advance your job search. You can also network with past alumni from your college or people that are currently in your field of work. This is even another way to get your name on the top of a Google search. What’s not to love?
