The Value of a LinkedIn profile
I have a LinkedIn account and I think it’s wonderful! It makes me feel so good that I want to dance! The reason why I’m so excited about having a LinkedIn account is that it allows me to network with other people that are in the fields that I would like to get into. Also, it allows me to bounce some ideas off of people who are doing what I’m doing and people that have knowledge that I do not possess. The only cons that I would say is that your resume needs to match your linkedin profile, if it doesn’t then a potential employer might think that you’re not being very honest. LI is very important to me professionally because I plan on pursuing my Masters in Healthcare Administration and I’ve gotten some great feedbacks from people in my network. I am a member of several HR and green networks but I don’t speak much in the group. Since, I’m still learning and feel that I can contribute, I prefer to listen and analyze people’s comments. I research some of the information that is out there and it helps me in my personal knowledge-base.
