To some people, LinkedIn is just a website where users document their work experience. To us, it’s much more.
LinkedIn is a powerful resource that professionals use to market themselves. On the site, you can apply for jobs or let your profile show why you deserve one. LinkedIn can do you wonders for your professional life if you’re willing to work with it, which is something we recommend.
There are more than 200 million users on LinkedIn with two new users joining every second. More than 2.7 million business pages are on LinkedIn, sharing job postings and recruiting new talent, including Brogan & Partners. Brogan hired four new employees in 2014 (including myself), and all of them applied to work with us through LinkedIn.
LinkedIn is not just listing previous job titles and employers, it’s showcasing your talents and abilities. It’s not just connecting with people you know, it’s networking with people you want to know more about. And it’s not just listing your goals, it’s sharing your dreams.
Luckily for us, our four new hires’ dreams were to work at Brogan. What’s yours?
