Calling All Utah Tech Job Seekers! 9 LinkedIn Groups for You


By Published on November 26, 2018

If you have earned, are in the process of earning, or plan to earn your Associate’s degree in Computer Technology, chances are you’re also in the market for a job—a tech job specifically. If this is true, you’re in luck! There is currently a tech boom happening and the industry is just bursting with jobs for the taking. However, the act of finding a job and getting hired for it has changed a lot in the last decade. Modern times call for modern modes of finding employment.

One great way to go about it is through LinkedIn, “the world’s largest professional network with more than 562 million users in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide.”

 

  • LinkedIn’s Vision: “Create economic opportunity for every member of the global workforce.”

 

  • LinkedIn’s Mission: “Connect the world’s professionals to make them more productive and successful.”

 

LinkedIn is such an important resource for both employers and would-be employees. Let’s put it this way, if you’re not seen on LinkedIn, you’re not seen as a serious job candidate.
