LinkedIn, MySpace for Grown Ups!

LinkedIn could be one of the most valuable business tools available today. Think of it as MySpace or FaceBook for adults. Social and professional networking are hot. Check it out!

From the LinkedIn site:

LinkedIn is an online network of more than 6.5 million experienced professionals from around the world, representing 130 industries.

When you join, you create a profile that summarizes your professional accomplishments. Your profile helps you find and be found by former colleagues, clients, and partners. You can add more connections by inviting trusted contacts to join LinkedIn and connect to you.

Your network consists of your connections, your connections’ connections, and the people they know, linking you to thousands of qualified professionals.

Through your network you can:

  • Find potential clients, service providers, subject experts, and partners who come recommended
  • Be found for business opportunities
  • Search for great jobs
  • Discover inside connections that can help you land jobs and close deals
  • Post and distribute job listings
  • Find high-quality passive candidates
  • Get introduced to other professionals through the people you know

Dear anonymous jackass (and coward for not revealing yourself), LinkedIn actually started in 2003, so that would have been the better joke.
