Why to have LinkedIn profile?


I wrote about mentors and how you can learn from them. Nowadays its easy to connect with them via LinkedIn. You can connect with them, write them short note and I am 100% sure they will answer.

Other reasons to have LinkedIn profile:

1.) Its your CV online

Its very easy to get your CV in PDF when you need it. Plus, when HR of company googles you, it’d be nice that s/he finds your profile. Better LinkedIn profile, then your drunk photos. I also found this:

 There’s an 80% chance employers will Google your name before inviting you in for an interview.

2.) You can find job

You can find some job there. This place is full of job ads and recruiters are always looking on LinkedIn for new people.
