690 million users worldwide

LinkedIn is an extensive database of professionals, organisations, specialised groups and vacancies. LinkedIn has over 690 million users worldwide. That is why it is the number one tool with which to explore the job market, expand your network and get yourself notice.

You can use LinkedIn to:

  • find people with the kind of job you want (who can offer insight into the role);
  • get an idea of possible career paths based on your degree;
  • prepare to meet someone – a shared interest or contact is a great icebreaker;
  • learn more about the employees and culture of a potential employer;
  • stay abreast of the latest trends in your field.

All you need to do to start looking and get people looking for you is to create a basic profile.
