In a tough job market, there's nothing more essential than a complete LinkedIn account, job experience not withstanding. To hammer home how important a well put-together LinkedIn account can be, the 'LinkedIn: Revolutionizing The World Of Recruiting' infographic by Obizmedia explores the statistics and reasoning behind the biggest professional social network on the web.
For example, 77% of current job openings are posted on LinkedIn, and without a LinkedIn account, there's no real way to compete with the 200 million users in 200 countries for any of those job postings. The only thing worse than not having a LinkedIn account in this job market is not having a complete profile, or having a poorly slapped-together one.
In comparison to other social media sites, 93% of recruiters use LinkedIn to find employees, while only 66 and 52% of recruiters use Facebook and Twitter respectively.
