Hi Valeria,

I use

I wouldn't have my current job right now if I hadn't built a useful network on LinkedIn.

I was able to get a thoughtful, in-depth view of the organization I was considering. I have since received feedback from four different people on how thoroughly I had been prepared and 'understood' their culture and organization.

It was my network that introduced me to the people I needed to know.

Good summary of what we can do with LinkedIn.

As for how I use LinkedIn, here are few things.

1. Before I go for interviews I check the interviewers profile on LinkedIn. It not only tell me about the person what what projects they have worked on and are working on.

2. It gives me a lot of information about the project that I am interviewing for or am interested in.

3. Recommendations tells me a lot about the other person I am interested in. When writing recommendations for others, it is my way of showing gratitude to the people I have worked for.
