I’m sure by now you may have all the buzz about LinkedIn. One of my clients turned me on to this nifty networking tool, and I’ll admit, I was skeptical. In fact I believe I’ve already blogged about LinkedIn.
Since then I’ve recommended the site to several of my clients and colleagues and watched my own network grow. I’ve heard from clients that LinkedIn helped them to passively seek employment without giving off red flags to their current employer. Further, several have gotten new jobs because of their connections through LinkedIn.
The Economist recently published an article about LinkedIn and how it works. I haven’t utilized all the bells and whistles yet, but plan to get more active in the specific forums for resume writers and broadcast journalists.
To your success!
