John covers all 5 steps in the article in a concise fashion allowing you to consider the various ideas and whether they will work for you or not. No need to sign up for anything and/or navigate all over trying to find the steps.


The 5 step method looks to be a very solid way to get infront of Alumni from your school for informational interviews. Also recall LinkedIn already has a standard search setup to help you pinpoint who you might want to reach out to by location, by company, and by functional job area.


The LinkedIn alumni search is located here:


Note: For the search to work, remember to setup your college in LinkedIn first. (Log on, in main header bar, look under contacts drop down to find the link for your school once setup.)

Knowledge Management ideas and models from Nick Milton of Knoco - sometimes provocative, but always grounded in experience.


"... social media can fragment into small silos of discussion, and how the wisdom of the crowd can fragment into the self-reinforcement of the clique. I cited the fact that there were over one hundred Knowledge Management discussion groups on Linked-in as an example oif how discussion can fragment into silos.

It's worse than I thought.
According to a recent post by Ian Wooller, there are now,

26 Alumni groups32 Corporate groups20 Conference groups132 Networking groups16 Nonprofit groups196 Professional groups.

All purporting to cover Knowledge Management.

That's a total of 422 groups."
