I’ve been invited to a luncheon discussion of “Does LinkedIn Have Any Value?” and I’m not going. The answer is a resounding “yes”, and I have proof! Of the people whose LinkedIn profiles I have written the past few months, two recent graduates immediately got their dream jobs in high-profile multi-national companies (the clients are multi-lingual and had international internship experiences), a third got a fabulous opportunity abroad (she and her family are moving this summer), and a fourth got the promotion he had hoped for (and is also moving overseas).

Bottom line: An optimal LinkedIn profile may not get you the job you want, but having an inadequate profile can be an obstacle. And, “international” is an important component of a career path, from entry-level to the C-Suite.
