How does LinkedIn rank for all the best job postings on the Internet?
It’s not just that the site ranks higher than the competition.
It’s also that LinkedIn offers a lot more help when it comes to finding the perfect job.
“There are a lot of people that are searching for a specific job, and they can’t find any job on LinkedIn that matches their skills, or they have an opportunity that is outside of what they have, or it’s not exactly what they can do,” says Rob Schulte, LinkedIn’s vice president of global business development.
And if you’re one of those people, you might want to consider using LinkedIn as a way to build a portfolio.
Here’s what you need to know about how to build your LinkedIn profile.
What’s a LinkedIn profile?
LinkedIn’s search engine is the only one that lets you pick your name and address and see all your work in one place.
“It’s very simple,” Schultes says.
“Just enter your LinkedIn password and you’ll get a list of all the people who have your name, and your address and you can see their profile and you see how they’re doing, and it’s pretty easy to see.”
What are LinkedIn’s terms of service?
In order to use LinkedIn, you need a password.
The password is sent to the company on a monthly basis, and Schulten says that’s about it.
“We don’t use third-party data, and we don’t store any data,” he says.
LinkedIn doesn’t keep track of who’s logged in to your account.
What kinds of content can I find on LinkedIn?
LinkedIn offers job boards for job seekers.
The job boards also include links to job sites that people are looking for, such as CareerBuilder.
And LinkedIn has also developed a list called LinkedIn Career, which lists people who are currently working for the company and what they’re looking for.
Schulters says the job boards are “very helpful” for people looking to build an online resume.
“And then we also offer people a lot better search tools,” he adds.
What can I do with LinkedIn?
“You can create a LinkedIn group and invite people to join,” Schults says.
There are also a variety of ways to advertise on LinkedIn, from posting an ad to creating an ad for yourself to a paid service.
Schults also offers a free “LinkedIn Jobs” app, which lets you create a company page and offer your own job descriptions.
How do I get a LinkedIn account?
Once you’ve got a LinkedIn user name, password, and account, you can sign up for an account by going to https://login.linkedin.com.
There, you’ll be asked to sign up as a member.
Then you’ll have to fill out the LinkedIn profile and create a profile for yourself.
“The first thing we’re doing is going to create an email address for you,” Schuldes says, “and then we’re going to get that person’s password, so they can log in with their email address.”
Can I use LinkedIn to search for a job?
Yes, Schult says.
But he cautions that if you want to use it to apply for a new job, you won’t have the ability to do so unless you have a LinkedIn employee.
You’ll need to do a background check to get a job, Schults adds.
“I’ve had people say, ‘Hey, you don’t need a LinkedIn password to do this job search.’
I’ve had them say, I didn’t even know there was a LinkedIn job search site.”
Schult, Schutz, and other LinkedIn employees say that the company will never charge you for using LinkedIn.
“You don’t get any money if you don.
So we never ask for money, and there’s nothing that says we’re charging for it,” Schults says.
Does LinkedIn offer a job-search tool for people who don’t have an account?
Schults says LinkedIn offers “a tool for the job seekers to find jobs.”
The company has partnered with CareerBuilder to offer the LinkedIn Job Search, which allows people to search in different industries and industries, including finance, engineering, and medicine.
“For us, it’s the best way to get to know the candidates and find the right job for them,” Schunstes says of the Job Search.
How can I get more information about LinkedIn?
You can sign into your LinkedIn account by clicking on “Settings” and going to “Profile,” which will be the last step.
You can also access LinkedIn’s community to read more about the company.
And Schultens says LinkedIn does have a free mobile app.
“If you are on the iPhone, we can have you go into the app and you go through the process,” he tells TechCrunch.
