Ever since the Microsoft had acquired LinkedIn, the social networking platform of the working world has added a couple of good updates lately. These updates tell us that the LinkedIn is no more just a place of jobs and networks for the Microsoft, but rather it is more about professional development which includes services such as steady streams of news and other desired content in addition to online learning to expand your knowledge.
In the latest update, the users in US, UK and India can use LinkedIn to interact with their mentors to get guidance on how to proceed themselves in their careers at free of cost. This new launching is being termed as “Career Advice”. Just as the name sounds, you will be able to get the right advice at the right time to steer your careers forward.
The idea of this newest update is simple. It is to help the users to find a decision on how to find a job, feedback on their current progress at work and much more.

How to use Career Advice on LinkedIn?
- First of all, you should be living in either US or UK or India as of now. By the time you read this post, this service should be available to more users in other regions as well.
- After opening your LinkedIn Profile, find the Career Advice tab on your dashboard.
- Now that you have found the Career Advice, it is highly important that you know on how to use it. After launching it, you will have to answer a set of questions to define what you are really looking for in terms of advice.
- Once that’s done, the LinkedIn will display you a set of recommendations on who might be the right person to guide you in a series of Tinder-like swiping screens to choose the exact match as mentor.
On the other hand, the social networking site will also ask the mentors to provide information on the kind of mentoring they are looking forward to provide.
