Whether you have landed your first job or you are currently job seeking, it is important for you to update your LinkedIn profile. LinkedIn is your online rolodex (you know what that is right?) and you can find business contacts very easily.
You may be surprised what your classmates ended up doing professionally. And they may be a great connection for introducing you to the right person.
1. Use your resume
2. Be creative
3. Ask for recommendations (a feature on LinkedIn that works like a reference).
4. Link up with as many people as you can
5. Don't start linking up with people until your profile is finished
