I guess since most of you take advantage of all the available social networks these days, you must have figured out how they connect you swiftly with your friends and relatives.
But what if all of these friends could help you to find a better job, based on your skill and performance? Wouldn’t that be nice? It surely would=). This article will bring up-to-date on one of the most powerful career tools currently available on the web.
Social networking is awesome. But career social networking is even more awesome. Why? Well, social networks are mostly about keeping up with friends, and you may agree that much of the info you get from your contacts via social networks is actually useless.
The resource I’d like to bring to your attention is called LinkedIn (http://linkedin.com). This is a business-oriented social network designed to provide you with a career growth tool.
The underlying principle is similar to any social network – you provide your info, and start making contacts by finding like-minded people. However, in LinkedIn, you find them in the same occupational field.
Since this resource is designed to help you find a job, the site offers to house and share your CV (resume). Basically your whole LinkedIn page is a huge CV that you fill out yourself.
It has a blogging section and a section where specialists in your field answer questions from other users. This feature could really be helpful. Since you are reading this article, you are a freelancer and this site seems practically created for you=)
Be sure to check it out! I’m pretty sure that if you are competent at writing, and assiduous about finding contacts on the LinkedIn network, you will soon find more job opportunities coming your way=)
Thank you, ciao)
