Many career counselors play an active role in sourcing job opportunities for their clients. That means they are working every day to get in touch with employers in their communities who could potentially interview and hire their job seeking clients. LinkedIn is not just a job search tool. The platform can help these counselors be more effective and efficient on the outreach they conduct on behalf of their clients.
