Has Linkedin helped someone you know find a job?

My alma mater, the University of North Texas, has asked me to speak to a group of students about how to use LinkedIn to find a job. I cover the basics of creating a profile, making connections, being in groups, etc. Thanks to several connections on Linkedin I have some great advice from recruiters and HR professionals about how they use it, and advice for job seekers.

If you have any thoughts/advice for how people entering the workforce should be using Linkedin, or things for them to think about, I would appreciate hearing it.
