*IMPORTANT* There is always going to be someone that knows someone that knows someone. ADD AS MANY PEOPLE THAT YOU KNOW!
3. Have a Business Objective
Add in a brief summary about yourself so that people know your experiences and background, and what you are looking for.
If you are looking for a job, write that you are seeking an opportunity for employment.
4. Getting Recommendations on Linkedin
Try to get recommendations from your previous colleagues, bosses, and or mentors to write you a recommendation about your work.
You should always return the favor! Write a recommendation back, and always write recommendations for others even if they have not yet written one about you.

Always network, whenever you can! Networking opens up doors for employment, business opportunities, and new ventures.
REACH OUT! Do not be afraid to reach out to people whenever possible. Seek advice, ask for career opportunities, and build relationships. HAVE FUN with NETWORKING!
