While you’re a busy student, thinking about what comes after college might seem like too much for you to handle. On the flip side, you might be thinking about it non-stop! Either way, it’s a good idea to start introducing yourself to the world of your chosen career path — you’ll need connections to get your foot in the door, after all. But how?
LinkedIn is the network that connects professionals in all fields, all over the world. It’s the only social network devoted to professionals, and it does its job very well. Job and career seekers can scroll through the job section, send connection requests to important people in their chosen field, communicate through the mail system, and more. It’s essentially a marketplace for careers, just with none of the hassle!
