You can add your professional website, blogs, or any other content that makes you look good. You can connect to old friends and colleagues from the past and even ask for recommendations from them. Joining groups also allows you to gain new information and connections you would never have known. Hiring companies use LinkedIn profiles to find individuals who are a good fit for the company. Hiring managers can look at your connections and are able to see if your previous connections are linked to them. Creating a LinkedIn profile is vital for any student who is about to start their job search.
