    • Similar  to  other  online  social  networks,  LinkedIn  provides  content  tailored  to  you.    The  more  informa/on  you  share  with  LinkedIn,  the  more  precise  the  topics  are  for  you  
    • CONNECTING  WITH  OTHERS  
    • email@email.com  One  of  the  ways  that  LinkedIn  offers  you  tailored  content  is  by  knowing  who  you  are  connected  to.    Linked  in  offers  to  look  for  people  /ed  to  your  email  address  to  find  possible  connec/ons  
    • In  order  for  LinkedIn  to  check  your  email  contacts  you  need  to  allow  them  to  do  it  
    • You  will  then  be  presented  with  some  contacts  already  on  LinkedIn  for  you  to  add  if  you  wish.    Note,  they  must  agree  to  have  you  add  them  for  them  to  be  a  connec/on  
    • You  can  also  click  on  Add  Connec/ons  to  invite  people  you  know,  find  classmates,  or  colleagues

    • Connec/ons  refer  to  how  closely  you  are  /ed  to  another  person  or  company.    Knowing  how  you  are  connected  helps  you  get  introduced  to  others  
    • LOOKING  FOR  JOBS  
    • LinkedIn  lets  you  search  for  jobs  by  /tle,  company,  key  words  
    • Searching  will  bring  up  a  list  of  related  posi/ons  that  can  then  be  refined  by  loca/on,  company,  and  more
