5 million active job & internship postings via LinkedIn's sophisticated job search engine
Network connections with colleagues, professionals in your field, and recruiters
Nearly 17,000 Eckerd alumni, many of whom are open to informational interviews from Eckerd students and recent graduates

How Do I Get Started With LinkedIn?
Use a great photo and an updated resume to set up your profile. Then connect with everyone you know (don't be shy!). Continue to check back and see who (hopefully a hiring manager!) has viewed your profile.
To maximize the success of your profile, become a LinkedIn All-Star by following these steps, and set up an appointment with a Career Advisor for additional pointers.
