    Editor’s Note: This is part of a series of blog posts by LinkedIn’s rockstar summer interns. Rewind to February of my freshman year in college. I’m sitting in front of my laptop, searching “best places to intern” in an effort to kick start my internship hunt. I see the same tech companies appear in every list across the web and proceed to read all about how great the engineering interns have it. At that moment, I started to wonder if I should’ve taken that introductory computer programming class in the fall. Did I miss my chance to work in tech? Fast forward to today. I’ve…

  • From Executive to Entrepreneur and Back with the Help of My LinkedIn Network

    John Neary
    26 Aug 2014 | 9:00 am
    When I was 33 years old, I achieved a career goal when I was named Chief Information Officer at a public company. While I was proud and honored to receive the appointment, I was also anxious about the road that lay ahead. I had inherited an IT department with a demoralized workforce and dismal customer satisfaction numbers. Employee satisfaction was at a near company-wide low of 28% and the team wasn’t very optimistic about the future. At the same time, internal customer satisfaction for services provided by the IT department were a paltry 24%. With a tired team and a disengaged…
  • Why You Shouldn’t Drop Out of School to Start a Company

    Michael Conover
    25 Aug 2014 | 9:00 am
    The image of a young, unstoppable founder is certainly appealing — cultivated in movies like “The Social Network” and through press-friendly initiatives like the Thiel 20 Under 20, there’s plenty in popular culture to suggest that the essential ingredients of entrepreneurship are little more than youth and a healthy dose of determination. This narrative is appealing – after all, dropping out of college to make millions of dollars sounds like a pretty great proposition – but as we discovered, the data paint a starkly different picture. Leveraging funding data from the popular…

    Editor’s Note: This is part of an ongoing Q&A series called the Inside Story where we sit down to learn more from the people behind the products at LinkedIn. Q. As the leader of LinkedIn’s User Experience Design team, do you have a particular design mantra or philosophy? A. My approach to design is always focused on aspiration. As a child, I grew up with practically nothing so I understand what it’s like to feel that your dreams are out of reach. I want the LinkedIn experience to make our members feel that they are taking a step closer to their goals and aspirations. When they are…

    I’m On LinkedIn – Now What???

  • LinkedIn Articles: You Gotta Check For Comments :(

    Jason Alba
    25 Aug 2014 | 1:03 pm
    Articles is relatively new, at least for people like me (non-influencers). One of the problems I just noticed is that after you write an article you don’t get notifications when you should take action. I’m not talking about ego-centric notifications, like “someone just read or liked your article.”  I’m talking about notices when someone comments on your article. For example, a few hours ago I posted this: I’m okay to not know a play-by-play of the first two arrows: views and likes. But I really, really, really want to know when someone leaves a comment.
  • LinkedIn’s Leaked Business Idea to Grow and Market More

    Here’s an article that has a supposedly confidential and leaked document laying out plans for LinkedIn to go to the next level: $1B In a nutshell, it’s all about selling more ads.  It’s a big, big pie, and LinkedIn wants a bigger slice. I don’t think it’s really that interesting, it just seems like the next logical step. But WOW, check out the scathing comments… !  There is no love lost in those comments… seems like there was very little to begin with in the first place.  Ouch.
  • LinkedIn Announcement Change: Boo! Hiss!

    Darn, LinkedIn did it again… another change that is cray cray. As a group manager/owner, I have the ability to send an “announcement” to group members.  Recently I sent an announcement and noticed that the title of the announcement was overwritten by LinkedIn’s generic title… this is what people see in their inbox: Sorry it’s so small, but what they have is “[New announcement]” which I didn’t put it. I think “announcement” is a dumb thing to call this thing, and in my inbox, in the subject view, it takes up way to many…

  • LinkedIn: The Great Content Platform (what does that mean for professional networking?)

    Jason Alba
    1 Jul 2014 | 3:03 pm
    Check out this Buzzfeed article: LinkedIn Slashes Referral Traffic To Publishers This means that LinkedIn used to send their users to other sites to read content, but it looks like LinkedIn is keeping it’s users/members inside of LinkedIn, not sending them out at all (or at least, a lot less than before). This is what some would say is “does not play well with others.”  Of course, there is no obligation for LinkedIn to send users anywhere… Buzzfeed is a company that was built by sites like Facebook where users would say “go read this cool article!”……

    Social Selling is about many things. But first and foremost it is about getting attention and keeping their interest – what people see and read. It is about relationship building and this article deals with the start of many of those relationships. Sorry to say this, but your profile might be killing business prospects and you may not even know it. Visitors come to your profile and they might be “already gone”. Why is this and what can you do about it? Visitors may be coming to your LinkedIn profile and they just don’t like what they see. They jump for the back button. You’ve…

    You’ve heard this, or something like it before. I need to improve my LinkedIn profile and I’ll get to it “One of These Nights.” It is on a list of “somedays” that we all have that probably also includes exercising more, eating better or cleaning out the basement. If you are going to begin social selling (and many of our readers should) it starts with an update of your LinkedIn profile, one that will begin “One of These Nights*.”  The problem is that night never quite seems to arrive. I am actually an Industrial Engineer (1983) and I remember something similar from my physics…

Chances are your team is not “pretty maids all in a row” on LinkedIn but it CAN be. That brings us to the topic of marketing, users, profiles, sales and social selling. The problem is your team may not look the part for social selling. They are probably not all “on board” and they truly need to be. This herd of cats requires some extra attention.

We’ve pioneered this simple little technique for turning casual gatherings into something bigger, especially when traveling. We’ve even given some of them a name–LinkedIn Rockstar Networking Events–and we’ve done dozens. We are taking a far simpler look here though… In a nutshell, you turn a simple gathering or “beer meeting” into an event. You do a little extra work…
