LinkedIn has become a social media phenomenon for professionals looking to grow their network and become known within their specialist area. To date, there are 300 million members on LinkedIn, with two new members per second.
There are 15 million professionals in the UK alone - these statistics should be enough to have any professional interested in the information and possibilities the platforms can offer.
LinkedIn has now become the most talked about social media network, with job seekers being able to search current job postings, connect with people in their markets and start groups or discussions to keep up to date with current affairs.
We at Sellick Partnership pride ourselves in being at the forefront of social media so we can grow our network to connect with people who we can assist and give knowledge to in our market.
The legal team who work with locum positions have set up a 'Legal Locums Across the UK' group to reach out to legal locum professionals nationwide who currently use social media and keep them up to date with events, recent case law, job postings and general discussions about the market we recruit to, including our wide range of blogs.
If you are a legal locum or someone who is looking to make a career change to a locum, feel free to join the group and get involved in discussions. If you have not set up a LinkedIn profile, we offer excellent and easy 'How To Guides' to help get you started!
The phrase "It's not about what you know, it's who you know" is more apparent than ever within our current market as the majority of individuals that register with ourselves are recommendations from colleagues or organisations we currently work with.
Why not become a part of this professional community and use social media to your full advantage?
If you have any questions about becoming a locum or would like to request a LinkedIn guide, please contact me on 0161 8341642 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
