The Ultimate List of 80+ LinkedIn Voices
Job Seekers Should Follow
Like any list one creates, there’s a magic number in mind. It could be 10, 20, 30, etc. Mine was 50 LinkedIn voices job seekers should follow, but then I dug deeper in the proverbial weeds and found more than 50 voices who deserved to be on this list. And I’m sure I’ve forgotten people, so more will be added.
The people on this list have stood out for sharing posts and articles; commenting on others’ content; producing video, YouTube, and podcasts; and overall providing sage advice on the job search. In short, they engage with their community.
Pass it Along
If you attend networking events and go to jobs clubs, you’ve been meeting other job seekers just like you. Mention the Nifty50s to them and encourage them to visit as well. You’ll be helping them and you’ll make an appreciative friend for yourself.
