Aside from being a great platform to find and connect with different people who share the same professional interests as you, LinkedIn also saves you the chance to search for jobs that have been posted by others on the site. It’s so easy to find a job that suits your set of skills and experience perfectly.

You can also increase the credibility of your LinkedIn profile with your academic and professional qualifications, skills, certification, achievements, and etc. So, if you’re someone who wants to start your career in a bigger and more professional scope, LinkedIn is definitely the way to go.

Personally, I haven’t done this before. Instead, I use LinkedIn’s template to input the information. I think this looks cleaner, but sometimes people want to save a PDF or just want it in a different format.
