LinkedIn Social Network

linkedin Miguel Beteta RodrigoLinkedIn is a business oriented social networking site. With more than 9 million registered users, in more than 150 countries, it is the ideal place to build your connections.

The main purpose of the site is to allow registered users to maintain a list of contact details of people they know and trust. The people in the list are called connections. Users can invite anyone to become a connection.

It is specially useful to find jobs, people and business opportunities. I personally joined the network as part of my current job hunting strategy. This is for sure one of the best places I know for job seeking.

Another cool feature is that you can have an online version of your resume (here’s mine), which can be found as a public profile through regular web search. This feature may be very useful to market yourself in the internet.

It is totally free and easy to use so I encourage you to give it a try! ;-)
