LinkedIn has just introduced a new job portal for recent graduates to gain easy access to entry-level jobs at leading companies across the globe. This portal will provide recent graduates with several advantages:
- Help employers find you and learn who you are, what you are looking for and what skills you have to offer through development of your profile,
- Target, explore and research various company pages in your job search,
- Expand your contacts and network with employers and other professionals in your field.
LinkedIn, for those who are not familiar with it, is a professional networking site. What is said, posted, and in general, how a person presents them self is quite different from how one might use their Facebook account. To learn more about the basics of LinkedIn and how to use it, listen to the webinar recordings located in the “About Us” tab of the Virtual Career Center located at www.uiaacareers.org/.
The LinkedIn portal can be found at: blog.linkedin.com/2011/03/21/linkedin-student-job-portal/.
