- [Instructor] Many times throughout this course, I've mentioned the search bar and have used the search bar, but I don't want to assume that you realize how powerful the search bar is on LinkedIn. So let's take a look at how you can improve your search on LinkedIn. This is an important thing when you're beginning to create your profile and start networking. So I'm going to go up here in the search bar. I'll click in here and type in something like instructional design. Now you'll notice a new feature here that when we do this, it says, do you want instructional design in jobs, in people, in groups, and so on? So I could select one of these. Let's just say I go with people. Now these are going to bring up people who have instructional design in their profile. They're either instructional designers, have been, studying it, whatever. Now once I do this, you'll see that now we get some more filters and we can narrow it down even more. Here, I can go to what level of connection they are, locations, a current company they work at. This might be a good way to find people that work at a specific company and connect with them. Now I can also go back over here where it says people and switch to other things, let's say jobs. Now this will bring me to a search for instructional designer and jobs that exist for it. I could do this for content. I could do it for groups and find instructional design groups as well. So take advantage of the search bar and utilize the filters. If I back up a bit and go here and select all filters, you'll see that there are a plethora of filters, so you can really narrow down what you're looking for on LinkedIn and then efficiently find it.
