- Are you a small business owner or CEO of a great company?
- Are you looking for interns and entry-level employees?
If yes, then you should look no further than the LinkedIn University section and Students Job Portal. LinkedIn works better than the traditional sources: network referrals, Craigslist, Elance, Guru – even employer networks at NYU, Columbia, Baruch, and many others.
Traditional sources are fraught with issues: misrepresentation of skills, unreliable people, laziness, time wasters, and the list goes on. That doesn’t mean you will not find intelligent and hard working people through traditional sources. The problem is combing through thousands of unqualified resumes for over a year and still not getting people who are just fit for your business.
LinkedIn’s University section, is quite good for those companies who are not yet a Fortune 500:
- On this page you find paid-interns and entry-level jobs in a number of disciplines
- A small business owner can target exactly who they are seeking
- A small business owner will receive hundreds of highly qualified candidates in a short time
- It drives up interest of the small business LinkedIn Company Page
Even for for job-seekers right out of college, using LinkedIn and being in the University job search results is the best way to establish professional credibility, particularly when you have little or no professional experience and want to have your profile recognized. A university grad can gain access and search rank by paying for a Premium LinkedIn subscription
A job seeker must have a Linked profile, because without it your professional profile is not just complete. As a job seeker, you want your LinkedIn to be the first thing that pops up, not your Facebook. LinkedIn is the best way to establish professional credibility especially when you have little or no professional experience and want to have your professional profile recognized.
The Professional social networking site LinkedIn on August 19, 2013 launched a new product called University Pages. Announcing the new product, Christina Allen, Director, Product Management, said in a blog post, “one cornerstone of our strategy to help students at every critical milestone from campus to fulfilling, successful careers”.
