100% Profile on LinkedIn – Does it matter?

Wednesday, April 21st, 2010

Every once in a while I hear the question: how do I get 100% on my LinkedIn Profile. My answer?  It doesn't matter. If you really want to know, here's an article you can refer to.  I don't know if this is accurate information, and I think it has changed over time. ...

Why is there an impostor in my company in LinkedIn?

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

I got an email from a friend in Washington state asking why there is someone in her LinkedIn Company page that she doesn't know.  This is a very small company, she is an owner, and she would clearly know who she has hired and/or paid. The way you end up in ...

Do I need a website if I have a LinkedIn Group?

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

This seems like a no-brainer but I've done a soft 180 on it since I read the email. The question comes from Jennifer Armitstead, who just started a Utah County (think: 40 miles south of Salt Lake City) job club.  This is one of two independent job clubs that I know ...

LinkedIn Tech Support

Monday, April 12th, 2010

LinkedIn Training (Options)

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

Preorder the LinkedIn for Job Seekers DVD here. I regularly get emails from my network about other LinkedIn DVDs or LinkedIn training sessions.  I thought I'd lay out some of them so you can compare with my LinkedIn DVD.  While the title is LinkedIn for Job Seekers, it is appropriate for ...

LinkedIn Group Announcements: Harness The Power

Monday, April 5th, 2010

Preorder the LinkedIn for Job Seekers DVD here. If you own a LinkedIn Group you have a quasi-opt-in newsletter available to you at no cost. A LinkedIn Group own can go to the manage page and "send an announcement."  This goes to all of the Group members except the ones who have ...

Use LinkedIn To Network OFFLINE

Friday, April 2nd, 2010

Preorder the LinkedIn for Job Seekers DVD here. I read a great post by Laurie Berenson that talks about how sometimes we fool ourselves into thinking that just because we are on LinkedIn (and Facebook and Twitter) we think we are doing a lot of networking. The post is titled Don't get ...
