Underrated LinkedIn Career Features

TL;DR: If you use LinkedIn the right way you can find the perfect role, build a dream career journey, set career and personal goals, and connect with others.

Here's how: 

  • Use "Search Appearances" to find possible companies and roles that you might like.
  • Use "Who Viewed Your Profile" to find the perfect mentor, coach, sponsor or accountability buddy.
  • Use "People Also Viewed" and People You May Know" for a trifecta. You can find a dream job, company and mentor all in one.

Step 1: Find Your Dream Career & Company

From you LinkedIn profile page, navigate to the area and click on your “search appearances” . This screen is a gold mine. From here you’ll see a few headers, including:

  • Keywords you were found for (aka, this could possibly be your future dream job)
  • Top job titles of your searchers (aka, this could also be possible dream jobs that you could pursue)
  • Top companies your searchers work at (aka, this could be your dream company)

The search appearances page refreshes every single week. Each week you have another chance to find your dream job by doing a deep dive on companies, keywords and job titles.

Step 2: Secure The Perfect Mentor

Click on “Who viewed your profile” on your LinkedIn page. If you don’t have premium LinkedIn you will only be able to see the last 3-5 people that have looked at your profile. If you’re not already connected with them, go ahead and send an invitation to connect.

Try to be intentional with each networking conversation you have with your new connections, you never know, one of these people could be a future mentor, coach, sponsor, or accountability buddy.

Go back to your LinkedIn page and locate the sections that say

  • “People also viewed”
  • “People you may know”

Click the button that says, “Show More” under each section. Here’s how to use both sections:

Dream Job, Dream Company AND Dream Mentor all in one: Combined, these two sections give you a list of 20 people. Without even clicking on their names you’re able to see their job titles and company that they work for. Right of the bat you have a list of potential new jobs, companies, and mentors.

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
