Let’s face it, we’re a nation of social media addicts. It has its ups and downs – there are only so many angles you can shoot avocado toast from. At the end of the day though, most of us wouldn’t be without it, the beautiful time waster that it is.
But what if we were to tell you that there’s a social media platform that, actually, is really quite productive? A platform that cuts out all the unnecessary relationship status updates and dog ear filters, and that is really quite useful when it comes to developing your future career?
That’s Linkedin for you. You’ve probably heard of it, might have had some pesky sign up request emails through, and maybe you even made an account on a whim at some point. But chances are you aren’t fully aware of quite how useful it can be.
Yeah, it’s not full of the riveting memes, but it works as an online CV and a work-place Facebook rolled into one. You can list your qualifications, job history and skills, and employers can search you out through the useful stuff you load your profile with. Got all A*s at GCSE level? Put that on there. A good public speaker and a confident juggler? Add that too, why not.
You can also hunt for jobs, and can connect with friends, colleagues and interesting contacts – you never know how useful they might be in the future. You might not think you need it yet, but, like a seat belt, it’s best not to wait until you need it before strapping in.
