Chapter 13. Using LinkedIn to Strengthen Your Career Support Network

In This Chapter:

  • How to build your network: it's important for everyone; help yourself and help your friends.

  • How to find a job: unless you're in the extreme minority (like my dad, who had a single employer for 40 years), chances are you'll need to find a job at some point.

  • How to join a group: LinkedIn groups can be a good way to develop contacts, find out about job opportunities, and keep abreast of the latest information in your field.

  • How to benefit from LinkedIn as a retiree.
