I just spent the last two days in 5.5 hour presentations with Jim Browning, who is a LinkedIn expert in Atlanta. Jim does a lot of Linkedin training and consulting in Atlanta and surrounding areas. I was excited to finally meet Jim in person, as we’ve bumped into one another on various Yahoo Groups, and he signed up for a premium JibberJobber lifetime account (I was very impressed that he did that, since he’s not in a job search… tells me that Jim GETS relationship management and career management!).
Jim’s presentation is about 2 1/2 hours long, and I was excited to finally see another LinkedIn trainer do his thing, instead of me always doing it (I wanted to know what they talk about, and learn from them!).
By the end of Jim’s presentation, I was tired. Overwhelmed. I’m glad I knew something about LinkedIn, because if this was my first introduction I think I’d feel the weight of the world.
Where do you start?
When does it end?
What do you have to do regularly on LinkedIn???
So much to learn. And then there’s stuff you are supposed to do. Geesh.
I know what I think is important. I also know what I think is critical, allowing you to have a “two minute LinkedIn strategy,” as opposed to having a strategy which takes a ton of time.
But let me throw it to you – what do YOU think is important? Where do YOU start on LinkedIn? What do you do regularly? And what is not important to you?
