Since the start of the recession in December 2007, millions of jobs have been lost both in the US as well as globally, easily exceeding any previous downturn in the last half a century. While finding jobs is one piece of the equation, getting a job is most closely related to successful professional networking and that’s where LinkedIn can help.
