Military: You Need LinkedIn

There are two main reasons to be on LinkedIn

1. Network

Military branches are built on a foundation of networks. Utilizing LinkedIn will allow you to use that network as well as create links to other networks across the world.

People typically create LinkedIn profiles to network, job search, engage, or recruit. Therefore, LinkedIn creates a unique platform where the goals of different individuals complement one another, resulting in a thriving community.

For those transitioning into the civilian workforce, LinkedIn creates an opportunity to find people inside and outside your military network, to learn about various industries, and to stay informed about career opportunities.

2. Employers Look

In fact, in the Jobvite Recruiter Nation Report, 87% of recruiters found LinkedIn most effective when vetting candidates during the hiring process. LinkedIn is the largest online professional network surpassing 645 million members. It is vital to not only connect but to be active. With more than two million posts, videos, and articles, the algorithm filters, ranks, and displays posts in the feeds of LinkedIn’s members.

  • Share content you and your connection find interesting!

  • Commenting on a post can start a conversation that leads to learning, connections, and adding value for others to connect in.

  • Write your own LinkedIn article.

  • Start a conversation with a poll
