  • If you've ever received an email that says "Join my network on LinkedIn" you've probably

  • wondered, "What is LinkedIn?"

  • The simple answer is that it's the world's largest professional network, helping people

  • find and share opportunities every day.

  • But how is it relevant to you?

  • Managing your career is just one reason to join LinkedIn. As you develop your professional

  • profile, you establish an authoritative resource on your experience and capabilities that lets

  • people find you when they search the Internet. In two minutes, you'll be up and running with

  • the most important page on the web you'll ever have. Do you know what people find when

  • they Google your name? With LinkedIn you'll have more control over what appears in Google

  • results, and having a robust profile encourages people to approach you with opportunities. Many

  • of your contacts are already on LinkedIn, and you can reconnect just by uploading your address book.

  • This lets you stay in touch even as your contacts change jobs and email addresses. Your reputation

  • is summed up by the relationships you've developed over your career. LinkedIn helps you maintain

  • these relationships authentically. In addition, when you want to make new business connections,

  • you can find people using LinkedIn's search tool -- then see who you know in common.

  • This makes it easy to request an introduction from your trusted connections.

  • You can also join a LinkedIn group, where professionals in your field discuss issues and solve problems

  • related to your industry.

  • Link to your Twitter account to share tweets with your professional network both from LinkedIn

  • to Twitter, and vice versa.

  • And use LinkedIn's mobile application to stay current with your network wherever you are.

  • These are just a few features that help you get the most out of LinkedIn.

  • Whether you're working in an office or on the go, LinkedIn keeps you in touch with the people

  • that matter to your career. And since signing up is free, LinkedIn just might be the best

  • investment you'll ever make in your career.
