Employers are increasingly recognising that LinkedIn can be great for business and are encouraging employees to use and create accounts.
In the recruitment industry, it seems everyone who’s anyone has a profile. For those who don't have an account, get one now! LinkedIn is a great sourcing tool for candidates and clients and is an opportunity not to be missed.

Whether your employer has a solid, written policy or not; we’ve compiled a helpful guide to keep you on the straight and narrow when it comes to LinkedIn.
