Particularly with last year's merger with Microsoft, LinkIn remains the preeminent professional social networking site.
I was a little late to the game, but absolutely love LN. It takes a lot of work to build your profile up and refine it. There are a lot people who have free training and videos that can help you to figure out the nuances. If you figure out how to maximize it and get out and network on the platform it can generate some professional contacts.
What is particularly appealing is the overall positive vibe you create in your feed if you connect and follow the many great people out there. My favorite is Mack Story. He is always spot on with the articles and motivational updates that he provides.
This was from an article he posted a week ago. I have not been able to get this out of my head and wanted to share it on the blog because this relates so much to the message we are trying to get out. Build up who you are and everything else works from there.
If you have not already, take the time to get a Linked In Account going. It can be a really important tool to get your professional profile out there and can be a source of really, upbeat inspiration.
