What it is: LinkedIn is a social networking site that’s actually all about professional network building for people who are about to enter or are already in the workforce. Think of it as a Rolodex where you’re able to connect with employers, friends, and professors alike to help expand your network of professionals.

Who it is good for: LinkedIn is beneficial for all students preparing to begin their job search who want to learn more about a particular business opportunity as well as employers seeking potential candidates.

Why you should use it: Through LinkedIn, you are able to follow different companies and get notifications about job offers available and even “save” jobs that you’re interested in applying for. It allows you to upload your resume or design your own profile to showcase your work experiences. You can review the profiles of hiring professionals and discover which of your existing contacts, such as friends, previous employers, and even professors, can introduce you to them.
