The Importance of Having a LinkedIn Profile

 

Linked Training - Chery's Creative Services

LinkedIn™ is a robust tool for networking and building connections with over 450 million members. The power of meet and greets is a key component in building relationships and developing trust. It provides opportunities for individuals to create a storyboard, which is completely diverse from a traditional resume. People can expand upon their work experiences, skill sets, award recognitions and accomplishments in a professional career. Crafting a clear concise profile illustrates your reputation and brand image.

LinkedIn™ has a special platform called LinkedIn™University. It’s geared towards high school and college students in having similar opportunities to capitalize in utilizing LinkedIn™ for internships and towards their professional career  path. A student storyboard would be a little more unique. Students will have the ability to showcase written essays, Power Point presentations, volunteer and work experiences. LinkedIn™ provides students the opportunity to meet other students when attending college.
