LinkedIn is a social network which connects people on a professional level. Instead of likes and interests, your profile consists of the jobs, internships and other experiences you have had; your skills and abilities; and the honors and awards you've received. Your online profile resembles your resume, but with added features that are inherent of a social media site. For instance, your colleagues/classmates and bosses/professors can give you a short recommendation on your page for the position they know you through. You can also join groups that share your interests, which is a great way to network with likeminded people in your field. Join today and start connecting with current and past colleagues. You never know what professional connections await!
