LinkedIn: how to create an account? - 2021 Account

 Linkedin, does this name ring a bell? Your loved ones may use it to "network" and look for work. So why not you? Our advice to get you started.

What is LinkedIn ? This American site, created in 2003 and bought by Microsoft in 2016, has become the first professional network to create and share your CV online . It is a real social network (the 5th largest in France, source Harris Interactive), because beyond displaying users' CVs , the platform has become a place of exchange and sharing . Whether you are looking for a job or not, this is an interesting and serious network where questionable and aggressive comments have no place because anonymity is meaningless .

You can also register for the pleasure of following the professional activities of your relatives or former colleagues or of course to find new professional opportunities by networking.

  5. Linkedin will offer you during registration to import the contacts from your address book in order to show you who is registered on the network in your friends. This is not mandatory but can make it easier for you to connect to your contacts.
