More about LinkedIn
My LinkedIn-resume is a work-in-progress. It gets updated more regularly than Michael Jordan changes his Nike shoes. Another plus is that my Twitter feeds are automatically posted into my LinkedIn-Page.
Ok, so you have a LinkedIn_account. Question is: Do You Use and Interact with it? I once heard Performance Guru, Brian Tracy say that "in order to build a fire, you must first gather wood." In other words, use LinkedIn to dig your well before you're thirsty.
Do you want to promote your professional skills sets, your product or service, or perhaps your organization? LinkedIn-dotcom is the place to do just that. My circle is less than 300 or so, but I intentionally keep it small. I prefer real intimacy and interaction with my LinkedIn professional network.
Oh, and one last thing (lest I forget}. Participate in the group discussion(s). As you move forward, perhaps you will want to create a discussion.
