You are here
By now you've no doubt heard how important it is to have a professional presence on LinkedIn. Marc Cenedella, in a column for The Ladders, cites 5 vital reasons to be on LinkedIn -- even if you have a job:
1. You need to have a large network so you can use it later. The day you decide you want another job, or have been laid off, is not the optimal time to start building a network.
2. Opportunities come to you; recruiters look for passive candidates. Organizations seek people who are excelling in the role they hope to fill. They'll look at these candidates before those who are unemployed.
