Using LinkedIn

Networking is the key strategy for getting the kind of work you love to do. We often hear about using LinkedIn as a networking tool.

How do you use it, though? Is it really worth the time and effort to set up your profile? I think so. Several people I know have gotten great jobs doing what they love simply because they reconnected with past colleagues and bosses, or with classmates and friends. And I've used it to introduce people to each other. This helped several people build their own professional networks, and resulted in several people getting interviews.

For more ideas, check out This article helps fill in some of the blanks on how to use LinkedIn to further our work goals.

Does anyone else have ideas for how to use LinkedIn? I'd love to see your comments on how you've used it to help yourself or someone else.
