I’m a firm believer that young professionals like me, or any professional for that matter, should be using LinkedIn, and actively.

Evidently, 2016 contender Hillary Clinton thinks so, too.

Mrs. Clinton isn’t the first 2016 hopeful to join the social networking site. “…about 115 million Americans joined before her.” In addition, 2016 presidential candidates “Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, and others already have profiles there,” according to MarketPlace.org.

“I created a LinkedIn profile. Yes, I’m looking for a new job.” — Hillary Clinton

But, honestly, she never really had to.

The director of the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia Larry Sabato said, “The difference between Hillary Clinton and every single other candidate running, including Jeb Bush, is she has universal recognition already.”

In just a few days, the former first lady already has amassed a huge following, 25,436 followers to be exact.

Here’s what Mrs. Clinton had to say writing in her debut post:

“I created a LinkedIn profile. Yes, I’m looking for a new job.”

Let’s see if the rest of America thinks she’s ready to turn a dream into reality. (Btw, you can follow me on LinkedIn here www.linkedin.com/in/tommygmeadejr.)
