LinkedIn is the biggest professional social networking site in the world. The only problem is, most people don’t start an account until they really need it.
Because most people undervalue networking altogether. They think networking is about finding headhunters and moving up. Whereas networking is simply a great way to to develop professionally, build your talents in your current job, and help build a strong network around you to help you professionally throughout your career.
But, LinkedIn has just introduced their Career Explorer, which will help students explore different career paths based on school, education level, and industry. Students are now able to visualize a variety of career paths as well as find job opportunities and companies in the field.
This is a great way to help college students jump on the LinkedIn train and build their network early, so that once they really need it, it will already be ready for them.
