LinkedIn is a “social networking” site for professionals. Think of it as a global referral network, whereby you can find people through a web of trusted connections. I’ve used LinkedIn extensively for years now, and have found it to be a quite valuable platform for making new (and renewing old) connections.
You create your own profile which is viewed by people within the LinkedIn network who are connected to your trusted connections. A great way to find like-minded professionals, conduct a job search, and maintain your contacts in a web-based environment. You can also make elements of your profile publicly available on the web.
