2. LinkedIn is only used to search for new career opportunities and I’m happy in my job!
Truth: While LinkedIn aims to help people find jobs, that is not its sole purpose. LinkedIn should be used to establish a professional brand (as mentioned above) and network. It also serves as an educational resource. Not only will LinkedIn feed you content that is tailored to your skills and areas of professional interest, your network will also share content that will aid in your personal development.
Tip: Consider folks who are in and outside of your immediate circle that would make strong professional connections. These should include but are not limited to:
1) Colleagues within and outside of your department
2) People within volunteer groups you’re a part of
3) Friends and family outside of work
4) Alumni of schools or organization you’ve belonged to
5) Influencers in your field or areas of interest
Connect with these individuals and learn from one another! Further, if you’re happy in your role and at your company, you should share your experiences with your LinkedIn network in an effort to attract more top talent into your organization.
