I’m working on a Social Science exercise and need support.
Linkedin is a great way to utilize those who have worked with you in attempts to network and find job opportunities, but also have reputable references when applying for professional positions. Often times employers will use companies to help find employees fit for positions they are attempting to fill, and those companies will search through Linkedin to see if there are employees who fit the description, and contact them.
I created a profile back in 2015 when first going to college at UMass Amherst, a horrible mistake at the time, but nonetheless a learning experience for me in both real life and work experience. It’s very simple, and requires an email, birthday, and name to confirm you are of age and in fact a real person. I would also recommending having a decent head shot of yourself that is up to date, as it will be the literal face of your first impression to those searching online. I may not use the site now, but once leaving the military, I can imagine it may help me out in some way, shape, or form.
