You got your current job off LinkedIn, didn’t you? Well, so did I. This is how it works now; you have to create an account so you can have exposure and get hired. Frankly the whole concept of the service this website offers is one of the best ideas anyone has ever had in the history of human beings.
It is a very creative and quite essential tool to start up careers or upgrade them. This idea has served millions of people including graduates, students, and even high positions workers. It is available for everyone for free, which seems illegal because that it is how good this is, but it isn’t.
Everyone has got to start from somewhere someday, now all we have to do is download an app and apply online through the account we created. That is all it takes to start. The whole concept is outstanding and very creative. It seems like a social media app, but it isn’t one, it is only meant to connect people and get them out of unemployment into the best jobs in their career life.
Since these past couple of years has been the slowest on the economy, as Covid-19 hit all of us pretty hard. It has drastically changed the whole concept of workplaces and work life and transformed it into a brand-new era of virtual working. LinkedIn quickly adjusted to those changes to help people who got terminated from their jobs to find new better ones, only by a few simple but life-changing updates and new features.
Working online has established a certain routine of boredom into our lives, but at the same time it has changed everything in our days and made it more comfortable. Everything transferred to online working and learning. All students had to adjust to the changes and so did workers. However, many have found better online jobs than the ones they had!
