Thanks to the internet many aspects of our lives changed for good and were revolutionized to the very core. One of these aspects is the way in which we find jobs and offer ourselves to the professional field, staying behind the old ways of searching for work by delivering physical resume. Definitely, LinkedIn as professional community platform was one that helped change this paradigm.

Created in 2003, LinkedIn was designed and conceived to bring professionals and workers together, as well as between colleagues to get the jobs they are ready for and not another, through connections and recommendations.
Continuing, through the LinkedIn platform is easy to find people, jobs, and a lot more with a simple search online, showing results respecting thousands of candidates to apply for the work of their dreams, as well as companies and businesses that are looking to hire the best workforce as possible.

Also, LinkedIn acts as the link (logically called that way) between people who submit resumes showing their skills in their profile and professional experience and expertise, directly with companies and job organizations that are looking for them to empower their companies and places of work. In this way, hirer and worker can be gathered with common interests.
