LinkedIn offers job seekers a vast online community of supporters who will be there to help them get jobs. Donna Serdula takes us back to the basics to remind us of the importance of building a powerful and engaging profile, one that will not only be found in searches, but that accurately reflects accomplishments and capabilities. It's not rocket science, but it does require a commitment of time and an occasional review to keep relevant. Serdula's book, LinkedIn Makeover, is a must read for LinkedIn users. Register online.
