2.1. Using LinkedIn’s useful features
Join Groups: you can join ready-made contacts in your chosen sector or connect with alumni from your university – these communities are more likely to offer information and advice than ‘cold-calling’ individuals.
Expand your awareness: LinkedIn is a global networking platform and a useful starting point for understanding the opportunities in other geographical areas – use the advanced search to find international opportunities.
Access to employers: many large and medium sized companies have a presence on this platform, however, this varies for smaller companies – follow the updates and news stories to expand your knowledge.
