  • @hoopega Gareth, thank you for sharing your professional insight; it was much appreciated. I am still however interested in reading ONE person’s personal account describing how LinkedIn helped them gain employment. For example, years ago before I began purchasing things off of Amazon I first heard my acquaintances casually speak about the amazing selection Amazon offered. I don’t hear anyone speak of LinkedIn casually. I only hear corporate sound bites, and that’s why I’m somewhat suspicious of the company’s benefits.

  • Hi ah_livia as a Recruiter in Australia who utilises Linkedin on a daily basis I can tell you that a good Linkedin account is an essential part of the job seeking process. I know 100's of people who have been placed in a new role who were first identified via their Linkedin account. In fact often roles are not advertised on job boards as consultants do a preliminary search of their network first.

    I would highly recommend developing a good profile on LInkedin that is informative and well connected to help you get noticed.

  • It seems like LinkedIn is great in theory but not application.

    Every time I view a LinkedIn presentation or read an article they are all very informative but I've yet to see them inaction outside of the theoretical sphere. I've YET to hear about ONE person who was actually hired courtesy of their LinkedIn account. And if they were hired it seems like the employers preexisting bias’s played a role in the hiring process.
