Linkedin for Android is a mobile app to connect to the popular social network for professionals. Update your profile with your professional accomplishments, including links and videos showing off your work. You can upload a copy of your resume or curriculum vitae or you can have Linkedin build a profile for you automatically by reading your curriculum vitae. List your skills and receive endorsements from friends. Do you want to move up in the business world, or are you seeking a job? Connect with potential employers through friends and mutual connections, join professional blogs or follow inspiring business figures. Linkedin is your network for building your professional profile.

Linkedin is a growing network with more professionals building profiles every day. With the mobile app, you can stay up-to-date with your network and connections, even when you are on the go. Easily find who in your phone contact list is already on Linkedin and connect with them. From there, you can view recommended connections based on your friend network and connect with them. Send messages to contacts easily from within the app, view your network, view your own profile, and receive notifications and updates on colleagues. The app can send you notifications when your friends find a new job or are celebrating a work anniversary. Endorse friends for skills you can confirm that they have and list projects you have worked on together.
