If you’re not familiar with Linkedin, go to the Linkedin Learning Center to get your basic questions answered. Then register (there’s no cost to start a basic account) and design a complete business profile that highlights your accomplishments. Think of this as your online resume. What would you want a prospective employer to read about you?
Also, remember that anyone at your company can see this profile, so if you don’t want your current employer to know that you are looking for a job, don’t mention it.
After you finish your profile, you can start to invite your current colleagues and friends to connect with you. You can also reconnect with people you worked with in the past. Search for colleagues at past jobs by using the “Search” button at the top of the page or go to the bottom of the page and look under “Just Joined Linkedin”. It will show people at the companies that you worked for that you might know.
Next, you want to expand your profile by asking colleagues to write references for you on Linkedin. Make sure to write references for them also.
