If you've been serious about moving your career forward in this Internet Age, you've probably visited Linkedin.com at some point. Most likely you registered, set up a profile, and started building your professional network. And since you are reading CNBC.com, you are probably equally serious about your investments and the business news that may affect them.
Now CNBC and LinkedIn are teaming up to make it easier for users to keep an eye on what's important for both their careers and investments.
I'm a big fan of LinkedIn — and I was BEFORE the business department here told me about this deal (by the way, the press release is here). I've used it to maintain contact with past colleagues and get in touch with old classmates and friends. But let's be real ... I've used it for job searches, just like everybody else. Heck, a buddy of mine bounced right back into his career after being laid off thanks mainly to LinkedIn.
So what if you could keep tabs on the industries and companies important to you and your career at the same time you are chatting up professional connections and putting feelers out for a possible job jump?
Now you'll be able to.
