Did you know that LinkedIn offers a free 1 year Job Seeker Subscription to every US veteran?
In order to get the free 1 year subscription, all you have to do is join the LinkedIn Group: LI Job Seeker Subscription.
The group is moderated and only US veterans with military service visible on their LinkedIn profile will be permitted to join the group and get access to the free 1 year Job Seeker Subscription.
How Do I List My Military Service On My LinkedIn Profile?In order to get the free 1 year Job Seeker Subscription, you must have your Military Service listed on your LinkedIn profile. Here’s how to list your military service on your profile:
4. Add the military branch where you served as the Company Name. In the Title field, add your rank. Under description, add a description of your responsibilities during the time you served.
5. Click the Save button.
You should receive an email from LinkedIn once your request is processed. Since I am not a veteran, I have not gone through the process myself; however, I understand you may still need to provide credit card information although LinkedIn will not actually bill your card.
There was an email going around stating that LinkedIn provided free premium membership for 60 months to US veterans. This was either incorrect or simply old intel. As of August 2013, LinkedIn provides US veterans with a 1 year Job Seeker Subscription free.

And thanks to Jim Carden for the tip that this free service is available.
Now that I have a free year of LinkedIn, how about a LinkedIn Makeover?I am happy to provide my DIY LinkedIn Makeover Kit, free of charge to any US Veteran who is in need. All you need to do to claim this product is to connect with me on LinkedIn and email me. Please include a link to your LinkedIn profile so I can see your military service listed among your experiences. That’s all!
We thank you for your service.
