What is li short for?


When discussing resumes, job searches, and networking, LI is short for LinkedIn. This website allows users to create professional profiles that detail their resumes. After creating a profile, users can search for jobs and connect with recruiters, co-workers, alumni, and friends.

As on Facebook and Twitter, LinkedIn users can post their thoughts for their connections to read. Unlike Facebook and Twitter, however, LI has a focused aim: to help professionals network and find and fill jobs. For that reason, you likely won't see any posts about cute puppies or dank memes on LI. Instead, expect to find screeds about workplace culture, marketing techniques, and recruiting tactics.
