Linkedin is the Facebook and Twitter of the business world. It allows its users to share advice and ideas with other business owners all over the world. According to, Linkedin has over 300 million professional and non-professional users.

Linkedin is not just for small business owners. Newly-graduated students are encouraged to make an account as well. 

By doing so, students will make job connections in their field of study and speed up job- hunting. Students may find this process difficult and Linkedin is here to make the search less excruciating.   

By creating a Linkedin profile, the user is essentially selling oneself.  They are their own advocate. This is an extraordinary concept that Linkedin has to offer. 

It is like filling out a resume without actually sending anything in. This allows future employers to actively search for new hires instead of new hires searching for them. It is not always easy finding a job. Most of the time, a person just stumbles upon it. stated that there are four benefits of being an active Linkedin user: It shows people who you are and where you came from, it lets others recommend and endorse you for your skills and past work, it shows off projects or notable  pieces of work completed, and finally it gets traffic to your website if you are already a professional. 

Linkedin users can get email job alerts, conduct company searches on their own, get recommendations from other professionals, and connect with other recent graduates. In addition, Linkedin can open the doors to international jobs available to users. 

This is extremely important for new college graduates or anyone looking for a new career adventure. Creating a Linkedin account is the best way a person can be their own campaigner. It is not always what you know, but who you know.
