Unit 9 Overview

In this week’s unit, we’re taking a look at LinkedIn. Having a professional LinkedIn profile matters more than ever in the digital age, whether you are a job seeker, an entrepreneur, or an executive leader of a Fortune 500 Company. Today, there are over 500 million LinkedIn users and 3+ million LinkedIn business pages. Every two seconds, someone new joins LinkedIn.   If you’re a job seeker, your LinkedIn profile is the vessel that gets you to the next level. Your resume gets delivered to a hand-select number of people. However, your LinkedIn profile is viewable by millions of users. It is your online resume and digital footprint. It is the first place people look to analyze your professional value. In the digital age, it is vital to have a professional LinkedIn profile that stands out apart from the rest and one that effectively communicates your personal brand.
