moderated Re: How accessible is Linked in

I'm a fairly regular user of LinkedIn. It's an extremely busy site with a lot going on and, therefore, a lot of content and options to navigate through. However, LinkedIn is most definitely worth your time if you're at all interested in networking and job seeking. I have found it to be an invaluable resource and I can't recommend it highly enough. Parts of it are very accessible and other parts of it could do with some improvement but it's definitely doable.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I would take the time to build your profile with as much detail as is reasonable. Add any roles you've had/have, including volunteer opportunities which might be of relevance or interest to others, along with skills that you have, awards you've received, accomplishments, etc. Search for people who are also members who you'd like to network with but I would recommend doing so only when you feel your profile is at a point where you're comfortable with others viewing it.
I would call LinkedIn a professional networking site rather than a social networking site, such as Facebook. Therefore, keep everything professional. Highlight your professional work and skills but not your favorite foods or TV shows.
I don't have the time to provide one on one support or to answer specific questions about LinkedIn and I honestly don't know the best list or group where questions of this nature can be asked. However, give LinkedIn a chance and I think you may receive many benefits from it.
