It’s no secret here in Cincy Recruiter’s World that I’m a LinkedIn
Fan. When I boot up my computer each day, the first thing I open after
Outlook and Google is LinkedIn – and it’s open all day as I drop in out
on a regular basis. I use LinkedIn to stay connected to my network, to
research people and companies and to learn new things from the Groups
I’m in, questions that are asked/answered in the Answers section and
the numerous blog posts, Slideshare presentations and reading suggestions that are uploaded by those I’m connected to.
I speak to groups and organizations regularly and I probably answer several questions a day from individuals about how to use LinkedIn. Recently, Kerry Sandberg Scott – the brains behind the super awesome blog Clue Wagon
– asked if I’d answer some common questions that she gets from her
readers to share on her blog. I was happy to participate and this week,
she’s running a LinkedIn 101 series of posts with those
questions/answers. The first post is up today – LinkedIn 101: Getting Started – and myself and another Recruiter – Betsy Curtin from plum
– will be sharing our thoughts. So check out what we had to say and if
you’re not a subscriber to Clue Wagon already – I’d encourage you to do
so. Kerry shares a lot of great information on HR, job search and
recruiting with a sense of humor and great writing style.
