You've got to get on LinkedIn

Friday, March 27, 2009 ·

OK gang. Based on my conversations with developers I've noticed many of you haven't taken the time to create a profile on LinkedIn. I had a reminder today as I attended a MN Recruiter Conference. I hear that only 20% of college students have taken time to create a LinkedIN profile, and they are more prolific on Facebook and the failing Myspace. Out of all Social Media tools out there now LinkedIn is the only one you Really Need to be on. It is essential for your career. Those that have a profile are the more proactive ones and I'd bet are building a great pier and career networks.

For those not sure how to create a profile on LinkedIn and have questions, attend one of the free online seminars hosted by my friend Paul DeBettignies. They are held once a week or so. If you have any other questions send me an email. tavis@techcareertips.com
