Today's post is a one-stop shopping guide for new graduates to the benefits of and tweaks for using LinkedIn, which you might call "Facebook for Grownups." (There are two links because it appeared in Online Colleges first, and was reblogged at Career Enlightenment. Credit where credit is due.)
First part: "Tips." What to list, and whom to connect with.
Second part: "Groups for New Grads." LinkedIn has groups; they can be difficult to find on your own. Here's a roundup.
Third part: "Tools." Apps and resources both on and off LinkedIn's site that perform specific functions.
Fourth part: "Resources." Additional guides to specific ways to use LinkedIn.
Many, many links to other sites if a particular tip or tool looks interesting, but you're not sure about the nitty-gritty.
