LinkedIn is a PROFESSIONAL networking site.  It is very useful to learn about companies and careers, search job and internship openings and more importantly to network with other professionals. When setting up your profile, do so completely.  Use the same name as is on your resume, add a strong headline, develop a professional summary and use keywords that match your career interests throughout your profile.

A useful way to use LinkedIn is to utilize LinkedIn’s Alumni Career Insights tool.  Review where Saints are living and working and reach out to alumni to build your professional network.
