The power of LinkedIn for job searches is continually increasing. During 2012 more than 59,000 user profiles were viewed each day according to the social network. This equates to more than forty-one LinkedIn profiles viewed every second of the day. But these numbers are only part of the story as they are only for profiles viewed on mobile devices.

LinkedIn originated as a social networking site that offered both personal and professional networking. Over time they have become solely focused on professional networking making it a great location for career development.

Among the features of LinkedIn are groups. They allow job seekers to communicate directly with other job seekers in settings often viewed by recruiters. Insightful comments can lead to recognition by the recruiter.
