I've found it to be helpful. Several head hunters reached out to me after viewing my profile....I just accepted a job offer last week.

It's worthless to me but that's purely because I treated it as worthless by never using it. LOL

When I was first licensed, I gathered the e-mail addresses of all the nurse supervisors on the floors I wanted to work.  I applied for the position and then e-mailed them letting them know that I had applied including the link to my LinkedIn.  I got hired pretty quickly on a very competitive floor day shift which is almost unheard of for new grads out here.  I highly recommend it.

Awesome! Do you mind sharing what field you are in? Also if it is an upper level role?

I've heard these stories a few times and they seem to be tech related, and upper level. Things that are more specialized.

I took a class on networking and resumes and my prof stressed the importance of having one. Since, a lot of people have one, the competition for job postings can be rough. But it can allow you to network and connect with companies online. Also, I was taught that when a company google's your name (most do), you want to have a good internet footprint. So a linkedIn should be the first thing to show up.


no never...sorry...

This is what I've heard too

Anytime you go for a job interview lots of employers instantly check to see if you have a LinkedIn page...

I also heard that they can discriminate against you if your have a picture up...and they see that you're black..

I have a page but I need to update it.  Can't say its helpful or not just yet.  Since I will be looking for a job I'm going to take it more seriously...
