This profession social media site has become aÂ pivotalÂ tool for job seekers to show off an extended version of their experience. LinkedIn profiles allow users to write longer summaries of their job descriptions, make an unlimited list of skills and allows the users’ connections to write recommendations directly on their profile (pending the users’ approval).
Adding professional connections and getting their recommendations are key to building a successful profile.
Smart-phones also offer a LinkedIn mobile application for easy access no matter where you go.
