LinkedIn can be an excellent resource for so many things: Getting yourself and your talents out there, connecting with colleagues, networking with people you admire in your field, learning about different industries, and browsing viral posts about work culture are just a few ways to take advantage of the career platform. Over the years, LinkedIn has become one of the most popular job listing sites alongside its networking perks, with a plethora of positions posted hourly for everything from full-time positions to contract gigs, freelance writing jobs to VIP-level positions.
