Are You Optimizing the Power of LinkedIn

More often than not, when I ask students if or how they are using LinkedIn, I typically get an indifferent toned response.  Some students will share they live on LinkedIn, but that is rare.  Additionally, there are students who will share they check it 1-2 times a week.  But a heavy majority tell me they don’t use it, or they do not know how to use it.  Regardless of how often you use LinkedIn and all of the platform’s tools, I encourage you to read this article.  The article is titled the Power of LinkedIn Stalking.  The author Hannah Gromen offers a simple and comprehensive list of how to make connections by utilizing various features on LinkedIn.  This is well worth the read for tips on how to grow your network.
