  • Creating a LinkedIn account is pretty simple.

  • You'll just need an email address and a few minutes of your time.

  • Let's take a look at how it works to get started, goto Lincoln dot com and your Web browser into your information.

  • Choose a password and then click the join button.

  • Lincoln will guide you through the steps of adding more detail to your profile.

  • Next, you'll need to verify your email address.

  • To do this, go to your inbox, look for the message from LinkedIn and then click the confirmation button.

  • You can also choose to sink the context list from your email account at this time.

  • This will make it easier to find people you already know on LinkedIn, so we recommend you do this eventually.

  • However, if you don't want to do it right now, you could just skip it.

  • A few more screens will appear, asking for your photo and professional interests like with email contacts.

  • You can skip these steps if you'd rather deal with them.

  • Later, however, we encourage you to explore everything Lincoln has to offer to ensure you're getting the most out of it.

  • After the sign up process, Lincoln may ask you to upgrade to a premium account, which costs a monthly subscription fee.

  • While the premium account provides additional features such as more messaging options and job opening details, we found that you can get a lot out of linked in using just the free account.

  • We recommend sticking with that one.

  • For now.

  • Now that your account is set up, you're ready to start creating your profile and adding connections.

Creating a LinkedIn account is pretty simple.
