Do You Need a LinkedIn Profile? YES.





If you're a job seeker, or preparing for an important interview, you need to be on LinkedIn!

From F*ck Your Resume by Jeremy Dillahunt:
  • One in three professionals on the planet are (sic) on LinkedIn
  • 41 percent of the world's millionaires use the service
  • 44 percent of LinkedIn members are female, 56 percent are male
  • About 75 percent of users are between 25 and 54
  • Education, information technology, financial services, and retail are the most represented industries
  • LinkedIn represents workers from more than 200 countries.
I won't go into all the details about how to create your professional LinkedIn profile here. But the following resources will help you navigate the platform and create a knock-out presentation of your expertise, skills, and personality.

Your future employer is going to Google you, like it or not. You want them to be favorably impressed. Begin with a well polished (and honest) LinkedIn profile.
