Did you know that online job applications are becoming extinct? You probably didn’t learn that in your history class… This is important though, in the next 5-10 years, online job applications will be mounted in the Smithsonian next to other past pieces of history: such as the butter churn or the Kia Sorento.
However, you don’t have to join them. Instead of getting stuck in the dark ages, Innovate! Join the wave of the future by creating a LinkedIn profile! All the cool kids are doing it so take part! Come on, it’s social media so it’s bound to be fun, right?

On top of the obvious perks, you can also create a professional space for yourself. Imagine your own table in the school cafeteria. You can invite whoever you want to it and have whatever food you see fit. Similarly, you can design your profile however you want it to be.
The same can be said about your personal brand. You can confidently show off your persona, your experiences, and your skills among your personally built network.
All for the low price of FREE! By watching the following episodes, you’ll learn the tricks of the trade to have recruiters busting down your door and be well on your way to turning your passions into a career.

The job market is like one big dating pool. Connecting with more people is easier and faster through social media. Just don’t be confused. LinkedIn is not Tinder (though, good on you for putting yourself out there!). Enter: Your LinkedIn profile!
