I created a LinkedIn Group last week for careerists. I’m not talking about career coaches, and resume writers, and recruiters. I’m talking about all of us who may be managing our own transition in the next, oh, 30 years. I did it for two reason:
- One of my users asked me to, and
- I figure since I wrote the book on LinkedIn, I should move from philosophical to practical with regard to groups.
It has over 100 members in just a few days. I’m not sure what to think about it. The process was easy. The biggest question I have, for group members, is SO WHAT??? I hope to answer that question over the next few weeks or months. I’ll blog about the #1 value to me as a group owner, but that’s for another post (and it’s probably not what you are thinking … in fact, it’s not what I thought it would be).
You can see (and join) the group here: http://www.linkedin.com/e/gis/59081/1F17FB5A29C0
Also, I should mention, one of my partners, Barbara Safani, asked me to put a Facebook Page up for this book. So here it is, in it’s infancy! http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-book-on-LinkedIn/22427981168
Feel free to join either group!
