    You added a profile photo to your LinkedIn Profile on day one — and your experience from the past ten years is fully represented on your LinkedIn Profile. Your time with the local Boys and Girls Club is covered under Volunteer Experience & Causes and you’re feeling like a LinkedIn pro. When I joined LinkedIn more than a year ago, I fancied myself a LinkedIn expert.  I’d checked all the boxes, shared content with my network and made sure my profile was always a true representation of where I was in my professional journey. What I’ve since learned is that as we as professionals…

No obviously, LinkedIn is the eight gazillion pound guerrilla… and no one is going head-to-head with them.  But the niche professional sites seem to be making progress.  In the article we learn about sites that are specifically for military, college kids, software geeks, mechanical engineers, data scientists, academics… and then look at the comments in that post to see other…

  • A Powerful Partner in Applying for Business School: LinkedIn

    Gaurav Varma
    24 Jul 2014 | 9:00 am
    Before I went to business school, I spent my life in the luxury sector where I interacted with people from all over the world. I was very happy in this industry but I always felt deeply passionate about enhancing my overall leadership potential by attending an international business school. I found the research conducted at these schools really interesting and often applied the learnings to my work. These experiences eventually motivated me to begin my search for an international business school in the U.S. Extensive research and soul searching led me to the Global MBA program at Temple…
  • Strong Economic Optimism In India Amidst A Mixed Global Picture: LinkedIn Economic Confidence Outlook

    Sam Gager
    23 Jul 2014 | 9:00 am
    The headline from our Q1 2014 LinkedIn Economic Confidence Outlook was “scattered optimism” about the global economy among business leaders. The latest results from Q2 show a decrease in the already moderate optimistic outlook among the majority of the 15 countries we surveyed, with one notable exception: India. Confidence in the global economy among business leaders in India took a major leap from 51% to 71% in Q2. The Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) pro-business and pro-job creation agenda and its extremely strong showing in India’s 2014 general election in May is a likely spark for…

    You know those rooms in the movies where battles are planned and strategies decided? Well, imagine my surprise when, just weeks after my college graduation and fresh into my new job at LinkedIn, I found myself locked in a room full of seasoned user experience designers, developers and product managers mapping out our strategy for the design of LinkedIn’s Connected app for iPhone. For weeks, we spent endless hours looking at research, talking to our members and rethinking the way LinkedIn could help you better manage your relationships — and I not only had a seat at the table, but held…
  • Help Others, Help Yourself: How I Reinvigorated My Job Search by Volunteering

    21 Jul 2014 | 9:16 am
    Will This Ever End? By the end of October 2012, I had been searching for my next career for nearly 7 months. I can safely say that it felt more like 7 years. The optimism I felt when my journey first started had trickled away in a haze of cover letters and job applications that received no positive responses (or no response at all). And if my feelings of uselessness and depression at that time weren’t enough, Superstorm Sandy promptly came along and plunged my family into darkness for 10 long days. The Storm Delivers Chaos… And Perspective. Ironically, I began to see the light after…

Well, I’ve just stumble onto some good news that I think you’ll be happy to hear.

  • 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!”……

    Can you trust LinkedIn? Read this post from Mr. LinkedIn: This Is Why LinkedIn Should Never ‘Retire’ A Feature I totally agree with Mark.  How can we continue to use a system if they keep removing features?  Especially if the features are something I build (by adding my content, like a CRM / contact manager)? As I use it, then they remove it, I lose trust. And then they announce the next greatest thing, and I forgive and use that, and they REMOVE IT. It only takes so many times before I don’t trust them at all. I revisit my question: what is the value proposition of LinkedIn?  Is…
  • Adding a new Job to your Profile, Finally LinkedIn Doesn’t Hijack your Headline!

    10 Jun 2014 | 11:00 pm
    In a fix that has bugged me for years, LinkedIn has finally done something awesome for users! I recently added a new position to my Profile, for my video game class, and when adding, saw this: This is super cool.  Before this option, LinkedIn would basically overwrite anything you had in your Profile, and replace it with something dumber (a title is dumber than what you should have in there, which is a value statement). Now, they ask you if you want to update (or, replace what you have in there) with the title + company! Thank you LinkedIn!  This was a pain!  Before, I would have to copy…
