LinkedIn Updates Profile Options for Grads

Are you a recent college grad entering the intimidating and tough business world?  Along with a firm handshake, new suit and determination, one of the first things you need is a LinkedIn account.    LinkedIn is a bit like a professional Facebook.  The networking site allows you to manage your contacts, join discussions, look for jobs, and reconnect with friends, family and colleagues.

Just in time for May graduates LinkedIn is updating profile sections for students.  Young professionals can now add honors and awards, organizations, projects, test scores and classes.  For newbies with unsubstantial resumes these options are a great way to share accomplishments and expand your LinkedIn account.

If you haven’t yet, join the over 100 million users on LinkedIn.  I’m sure you’ve heard on repeat that networking is the key to climbing the ladder, and LinkedIn is the networking tool of choice for many business professionals.  Visit  http://www.linkedin.com/ to make an account.
