    Now, what you're looking for is the App Store icon
    .
    It's a blue square with a white circle and a white letter A, which is made up of an architect's compass and a ruler.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  4. 4
    We're going to give that a single press
    .
    This is going to open up the App Store for us.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  5. 5
    Specifically, we are looking for LinkedIn
    .
    To do that, we're going to give a quick tap down here on the search bar. One tap on the search bar is going to open up the search window.

    If you've installed it on an older device or another iPhone, you will have a cloud icon here. All you'll need to do is simply click and download the previously downloaded version of the application. It will of course update to the newest version, but there will be that record of what you previously had.

  15. 15
    Swipe it again to the right, and it'll let us know that we can stay on top of our career
    .

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    Another swipe takes us over to let us know that we can also find our dream job or we can let it find us
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    And last but not least, we can start a profile, letting everyone else know about us and that will let opportunities find us
    .
    Or we can search for opportunities ourselves.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    You can Join Now if you are not already a member, or if you are a member like me, you can simply tap Sign In
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    When you sign in, it's going to ask for your email and password
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    Once you've entered your information, simply tap on the Sign In button
    .

  22. 22
    Click Continue
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  23. 23
    LinkedIn is going to ask for permission to access your contacts
    .
    I do not like LinkedIn to access my contacts, so I'm not going to allow it to access my contacts.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    Click OK
    .

    So if you are not connecting your contacts, you may skip this section by pressing the Skip button
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  26. 26
    Here, you can connect with people you may already know

    .
    Again, I'm going to skip.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  29. 29
    Now we can get insights from the world's top minds
    .
    You can click and tap on any of these to follow these people. The only catch is that in my personal opinion as a writer, I've discovered that many of the top minds of the world (at least those I've met) don't normally do their own writing. Also, they're certainly not regularly posting on LinkedIn. Usually, someone is paid to create content for them or to post here, so you're not actually connecting with them. Although you may be connecting with their beliefs if that is your interest or desire.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  30. 30
    Let's go ahead and tap Skip to go to the next one
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  31. 31
    If you like companies, you can also follow them
    .
    For me, this is much more interesting because there may be something in the Australian Writers Center that I would like to follow and keep up with. And I can scroll down to find different things and groups that I might be more interested in than some of the previous groups or people.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  32. 32
    Choose what you'd like, and then tap Done
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  33. 33
    If you're not sure that you're done, here you can tap Let's Go Back
    .
    Otherwise, tap I'm Done.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  34. 34
    You'll see on your main page a list of things that are relative to you and the people you follow, jobs suggested for you if you're in the market for a job, and more
    .
    Let's scroll back up to the top.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    When you're finished looking at it, just tap the LinkedIn button, which takes you back here to your side menu
