By signing up for a LinkedIn profile, you’re hooked into their network. It’s okay if you don’t have any professional experience to add yet or that you’re not proud of them because they don’t align with your future goals.

Some other benefits of LinkedIn Premium account that we love.
You have access to data regarding their company’s employee growth over the years. Positive growth is a good sign.
You can see an estimated salary compensation. Obviously, this isn’t always accurate and you shouldn’t rely too heavily on it, but it’s a nice-to-have for the curious.
If there are enough job applicants, you can see how you stack up against other job applicants. For this Amazon Alexa program ManAger job, I’m currently in the 10% of applicants based on my LinkedIn profile. Hence the importance of your profile and the information on there. In this case, the skills you’ve added as well as the skills others have endorsed you for are what it’s pulling from.
Bonus tip on using LinkedIn, some time ago they purchased an online learning platform – Lynda. With the purchase of this platform, they also acquired all of the fantastic educational videos and resources that were available. If you haven’t already, sign up for a free LinkedIn premium account for a month to start taking the courses they offer. A note of caution, if you don’t have or want to fork over $30 for a monthly subscription to a premium account, make sure you set a reminder on your phone or computer calendar to cancel your account before the month is up.

6. The Ladders
The Ladders started out many years ago as a business focused on job postings with salaries over $100,000, they’ve held true to their mission years later.
This website might be more tailored to the people who have already selected a career path and have some experience.
Their secret sauce – they’re focused on $100,000 and up paying jobs, along with people who are already somewhat experienced in their career.
One thing we do love is how in their website footer (the part all the way to the bottom), you can select jobs based on companies, industries, cities, and job roles. They lay it out which is great for some direction if you’re not sure where to start.
