If you’re a job seeker, you can discover how to search for jobs, employers, and recruiters as well as maximize the potential of recommendations and endorsements. If you’re using LinkedIn to grow your own business, you can explore the many ways a LinkedIn Company Page can attract potential clients. Finally, you move on to LinkedIn’s other powerful features including LinkedIn groups, LinkedIn Pulse, LinkedIn Ads, and more.
