water under the bridge

WARNING: it might be too late for you!

Yes, it's true, LinkedIn has a new online career tool but it's only good for college students. Although this new career connector isn't for seasoned professionals, it still acts as a good exercise to understand where you are and to start navigating to where you want to be.

Currently, Career Explorer takes the person's educational degree and indicated industry and displays traditional entry-level jobs. Depending how large your LinkedIn universe is, Career Explorer will then show you people who have the job titles that match your academic and professional experience. Next step? You know it, you electronic social butterfly.

How does LinkedIn refine their new online functionality? Let college student bang around on it and see what's popular and what needs more work. Select colleges have been given access to test out the new tool. When it's ready, the whole LinkedIn community will get access and a new career path is just a hop, skip, and jump away.
