    Taking Advantage of the Latest Changes to the LinkedIn Platform

    Keeping up with the last LinkedIn changes puts you ahead of your competition, whether you’re in business or looking for your next opportunity. The latest changes include improved analytics, the rollout of Creator Mode, enhanced company pages and LinkedIn Lives/LinkedIn Events integration. Being active on LinkedIn means engaging with others, not waiting to be contacted. It’s not enough to be on LinkedIn – you need to engage there, as yourself and as your company. When you're active on LinkedIn you can engage with your employees, with your prospective hires, and with your competition.
