I have a Linkedin profile, but I’ve heard people say it’s very helpful in a job search and I can’t figure out how.
Is there an active way to use it? Do you just search the connections of your connections for people who work where you’d like an interview? And if you find them do you just send a note saying hey-we both know so and so, can you help me get a job?
Or maybe it’s more passive and you just hope someone searches for exactly the skills you have listed on your profile?
I assume I could be getting more out of it, but at first glance it just seems like a more grown up version of Facebook.
