He is a firm believer in giving back to the society and helping others with everything that he can. Always ready for a road-trip, he’s the kind of person who is up and running for anything adventurous. It’s rare to spot him without his glares and a smile on his face.

A Definitive Guide To Understanding LinkedIn


‘A definitive guide to understanding LinkedIn’ is written with Entrepreneurs, job seekers and college students in mind. This book explains how LinkedIn is more than just a platform for adding connections. The book touches on making the most out of LinkedIn and how to use the platform the way that it was originally designed. LinkedIn is an exceptionally powerful tool for job seekers, Entrepreneurs and college students alike. For a lot of people though it appears to be a boring corporate professional network where all that we need to do is keep adding connection requests from people you don’t know, this book shows you the true essence of what LinkedIn is capable of doing. It covers everything from why you shouldn’t have a display picture with a beer in your hand ; to what you need to do when the CEO of your dream company connects with you. It also shares a few tips and tricks that makes LinkedIn even more effective for your use.

LinkedIn can be effectively used by Entrepreneurs as a business development tool, by students as a way to get better internships and by job seekers to get their dream jobs. This book shows you how you can use LinkedIn and make further more of the platform that you already are a part of. This is a must read for anyone and everyone who has created a LinkedIn profile.


This book is created in an interactive PDF format for use on any device with a PDF reader. I understand a lot of folks out there are using the Kindle, so this book is also made available on the Amazon App Store. I would personally suggest you to use the interactive PDF version for your device and use the App Store only for your Kindle. A lot of effort has gone into formatting and designing and Amazon App Store doesn’t really help a lot with the design.

Here’s a sneak peak of the contents page.
