Ofen times I hear people say that LinkedIn is one of the best places to land a job especially for people in the tech industry.


However, I have never heard of Nairalanders landing jobs through LinkedIn. So I will like to ask, has anyone gotten a job through LinkedIn?. Also, share your job hunting experience on the platform

It requires you gig-ing up and creating an impression.

In real life.... several interviews. Declined 2 or 3 offers.

Considering one right now. Corona delayed me accepting the offer then.

I totally agree with you.
You have to create an impression and add some impressive certified courses to your resume

Almost all my jobs have been through LinkedIn. I think if you're truly a professional with verifiable experience/achievements, LinkedIn will be your best bet. However, I don't see it being very effective for freshers. Just an opinion.

I got my current job through Linkedin

A prospective employer can easily view your profile and experience, then contact you when they are half-sure you are fit for the role

It makes recruiting easier for employee and employer
