Build your network

The larger your network, the more opportunities you will have access to. This does not mean that you have to connect with everyone, but the more people working in your industry in your contacts, the more professional opportunities will increase. You can build a quality network by connecting with your former clients, colleagues, friends from the University, etc. 


Feel free to add other professionals in your industry who can be found in groups and results via the search bar. Just remember to tailor your speech to each person by letting them know why you want to connect with them.

Posting on LinkedIn (especially Pulse) is a great way to gain credibility within your industry. When you share your knowledge and ideas on Linkedin, it can help build a reputation as an expert in a particular area.
