If you haven’t given serious thought to what location and industry you’ve selected on your LinkedIn profile, you’re probably leaving money on the table and making a critical career mistake. Why?

Do you have the perfect job? If you do, you’re one of the lucky ones. Most of us have yet to find our dream job.
