LinkedIn

So, what is LinkedIn? Many people have still not heard of it.

You need to be aware that (a) LinkedIn is growing at a phenomenal rate and becoming an essential part of everyone’s job-hunting and networking strategies and (b) that there are many differences between a LinkedIn profile and a CV.
