LinkedIn is easily the largest professional network in the world with more than 600 million users.
But it’s not enough to just have a LinkedIn page, you need a great one—especially if you’re looking for new opportunities.
A 2018 CareerBuilder survey found that 70 percent of employers use social media to screen candidates. Over half of those employers are searching for your profile to see if you have the skills needed for the job.
What’s more? LinkedIn found that people who add credentials to their profile receive 6x more profile views than those who don’t.
They can also search for people who graduated from CXL and find you on that list.
