- [Voiceover] Hello, and welcome to Up and Running with LinkedIn Job Seeker. I'm Garrick Chow. In this course, we'll take a tour through the features and benefits of this premium offering from LinkedIn, and examine the ways you can take advantage of its services during your job search. We'll first make sure you have your basic LinkedIn profile in good shape, by ensuring that you have a professional looking photo of yourself, a well thought out summary, and that you've paid some attention to other useful data on your page, like your skills and endorsements. We'll take a look at how to perform basic jobs searches with the free tools available to a basic account, and we'll see some ways you can continue to maintain and grow your network of connections.
After that, we'll upgrade to a premium job seeker account, and start looking at its features and tools, such as insights, which can show you how you stack up against both a company's current employees, and its applicant pool. We'll talk about best practices when contacting people through LinkedIn InMail, to inquire about job leads, or to make connections. We'll look at Premium Job Seekers advanced search tools, which can help you narrow down your job search results to find not just the jobs that interest you, but also to find the hiring managers and decision makers of the companies you're looking at, and once you've found some promising leads, we'll look at how to apply for a job through LinkedIn.
So, let's get started with Up and Running with LinkedIn Premium Job Seeker.
