Learn how to find your dream job—or simply get ahead in your field—with LinkedIn Premium Career.
- [Garrick] Hello, and welcome to this course on LinkedIn Premium Career. I'm Garrick Chow. In this course, we'll take a look at 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. 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 job searches with the free tools available to a basic account, and we'll see some ways you an continue to maintain and grow your network of connections.
After that, we'll upgrade to a premium career 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, and once you found some promising leads, we'll look at how to apply for a job through LinkedIn. We'll be covering all of this and a lot more, so let's get started.
