We pick ten of the best ways to make sure you get the most out of your LinkedIn account.

LinkedIn is the network for professionals, a place to communicate with colleagues and old classmates, where you can promote yourself and your business. It's the equivalent of an online CV, and the more thorough and active you are, the better. LinkedIn can be a really smart tool when it comes to networking, finding jobs, seeking clients and promoting companies. Follow our ten steps to become a LinkedIn pro.

10. People You May Know

People You May Know

The 'People You May Know' section on your LinkedIn's home page is a great place to browse for potential new contacts. The website uses the information on your profile, from your education to your employment history, to find people with similar profiles. This could mean you could find old classmates or colleagues, and you never know if one day you might need them in your networking circles. It also links you with people with whom you share a connection. So if you connect with someone from your new place of employment, it could be the fast and simple way of finding new colleagues. Only connect with people that you know or have a unique connection with, LinkedIn is not the place for scoring huge contact lists, but for keeping in touch with people who can be potentially useful in your career and who you know personally or professionally.
