LinkedIn is one of the best platforms in Trinidad and Tobago for networking professionals. It boasts of 293,181 Trini users. It’s a hub for recruiters from many industries locally and worldwide.

Noticeable to me, was a low number of 4,234 individuals belonging to the Financial Services Industry on LinkedIn Trinidad and Tobago. Most industries are hard and fast, like this one. It’s difficult to shake stereotypes when you want to transcend to another industry. Financial Services may have been your first job experience and you followed along in that industry for a while. Now that it’s time to move on to another industry, you’re not being noticed. It’s important to align your personal brand with something other than counting coins. Do you have a passion? Hobbies? Encourage your Finance friends to join LinkedIn, not much users are in that Industry.
The Turbulent Oil & Energy Industry
In these turbulent times, knowing how to reinvent your personal brand is paramount. LinkedIn is one of those platforms you can show your brand. Link in bio 💻📲

The Oil an Energy Industry in Trinidad and Tobago has become one of great speculation, especially in the last year. If you, or someone you know, suffered job loss, LinkedIn should be on your list of must haves. There are 16,447 users on LinkedIn in Trinidad and Tobago in the Oil an Energy Industry. What makes you different? You can reinvent your entire Resume and begin upgrading to your future. Your personal brand will speak for itself and let recruiters know that there is more to you than the hand that you were dealt. Begin updating your information, engaging with industry relevant content and networking.
LinkedIn is more than just a network that allows you to see where your professional friends are in life. Its a social network that possibly holds the keys to your next job. But are you ready to step your networking game up?
