More users are turning to LinkedIn to manage their professional connections, but the scope and diversity of LinkedIn offer so much more than basic contact information. LinkedIn can help you research potential employers, learn more about a target industry, prepare for an interview, and much more. No matter what your career objective, LinkedIn can be an invaluable tool once you understand how to use it.

- How to create a professional profile that promotes a positive, searchable personal brand identity;
- Criteria for contacts to add to your network, and who to keep out;
- How to use LinkedIn’s search tools for your next career move;
- The three biggest mistakes your colleagues are making on LinkedIn;
- How to research competitors for better business intelligence;
- How to communicate effectively using your LinkedIn network.
