Well, Linkedin is a professional portal where professionals from different communities or industries get connected together. Unlike Facebook or Instagram, we can’t use Linkedin in the same way. Here people share their thoughts related to technology or any industry related to their profession. You can easily get connected to the Human Resource (HR) Recruiter of any company through Linkedin. You can send connection request to that particular person you want to connect. Generally, in Linkedin people don’t hesitate to accept connection requests as all are professionals.
Top 10 ways to search job on Linkedin efficiently:
- First, you have to design or fill all the information in your Linkedin profile which plays an important role in getting a job. Choose a professional photo rather than a casual on your profile. Remember it is the first impression whenever the recruiter lands on your profile.

- Add your resume to the Linkedin profile so that the recruiter can directly see your resume. You can also include your Linkedin profile address to your resume.
- Always keep your Linkedin profile up to date. An outdated profile is neglected by recruiters. Add your recent work experience and qualification.
