Time for busting another LinkedIn myth: why should I use LinkedIn when I have Google (or other search engines)
My answer to this one is very short:
Google is an excellent resource to find information. So use it when you look for information.
LinkedIn is a collection of people and the relationships between them. Use LinkedIn when you are looking for a person. You won’t only find out more about this person (what you also might have been able to do with Google), but you also will discover who can help you get in touch with them.
To your success !
