Join author Richard Colback as he shows you how to get started with the world's largest professional networking site, LinkedIn. The course demonstrates how to build a profile that will get the attention of employers, recruiters, fellow professionals, and potential clients. Richard walks you through creating an account, adding pertinent information such as skills and work experience, making connections and joining groups, accessing LinkedIn from apps, and monitoring your stats to continuously build a better profile. Along the way, learn to grow your personal brand and become a more visible community member by participating in group discussions, asking and answering questions, and engaging in other ways that add to your profile's integrity.
Once you've downloaded the LinkedIn app to your iPad, you'll be able to access your LinkedIn account by clicking on the LinkedIn icon. Once you have signed in, you will have several options available to you. In the top left-hand corner is the LinkedIn icon. It brings you by to the home screen. Next to that is a gear wheel, which allows you to add and remove access to your Calendar, so that the LinkedIn application can access your iPad's Calendar, and match up the emails of attendees to meetings with the profiles it has in its system. This can allow you to review the profiles of people in advance of your meetings.
In the top right-hand corner, is a Search bar; it allows you to search the people within your network or outside it. For those outside your network, you'll be able to review their profile and send them invitations to connect. In the main section of the iPad application, there are three icons. The first of these will show you updates from Your Network,including the same set of features you would see on LinkedIn Today in the Updates section of your Home screen as well as who's viewed your profile and the activity in your network such as new positions and information shared by your coworkers.
There are several screens here and by swiping from right to left, you can access more information. You can also hit the Home icon at the bottom of the screen to come back to the All Updates homepage. The second icon will take you through to your profile. In the top right-hand corner of this screen is an option to share an update and beneath that a link through to your Twitter account, if you have entered one. In the main section at the bottom of the screen is your profile, and again if you swipe from the right to the left, information about Who's viewed your profile, followed by People you may know, and summary information about your connections.
The final section of the application is Messages. At the top is your Inbox, and beneath that, Notifications from within your network. You can take actions here, such as accepting or ignoring connection requests, as well as linking through to view all your invitations on one screen and all your mail on another. The LinkedIn application has a limited set of features currently, however updates are frequently made, and as a content reader, the iPad offers an excellent interface for reading network updates that you may not normally have time for while in your office or on your PC.
