    When you connect with someone, personalize the message.
    Alumni are a great resource for connections.
    Write useful and educational articles and share them in LinkedIn groups.
    LinkedIn has a very high ranking in Google, so your profile might be the first thing that shows up in search results.
    Recruiters often look at people’s profiles to determine how much they contribute to the community.
    If people connect with you on LinkedIn, you can also offer to them to join your newsletter.
    LinkedIn is a social network, not just a place to put up your resume and never look at it again.
