I am asking myself this question after I have run some surveys. When I asked for the key purpose for being in Linkedin 38% wanted to attract a new job where 37% are there for networking. Link to survey.
When I asked the question on where you found your current job – dating back not more than three years: Link to survey.
53% found it through job search online (company website, job sites)
23% through professional networking (professional groups, colleagues)
and the rest through other classical channels.
What surprised me the most that none really none had attracted a new job via Linkedin.
What could be the reason ? Any success stories on your side that you can share ?
I read so much about strategies to find a new job via Linkedin and great advice but it seems the reality still looks different.
