I have one.  I don't quite understand it.  My brother swears by it, though.

You can include other things like volunteering, project planning, coaching, other work experience.  I made mine as a new RN and had not a day of RN experience but a lot of other experience that showed leadership, integrity, etc.  If there's ever a time to be a show off, it's on your resume!  Don't underestimate yourself.  Once you start doing it, other things will come to mind and you'll realize how much of an asset you'd be to a potential employer.

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...

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 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...
