LinkedIn Basics: Who NOT to Connect With on LinkedIn

LinkedIn Basics: Who NOT to Connect With on LinkedIn | Get a Job Tips | Scoop.it
When you are growing your LinkedIn network, there are people who you DON'T want to connect with. Learn who and why. On Frugal Guidance 2.

Via Steve Cassady
Kathy Kaegel Bernard's insight:

I disagree with most of the people who the writer says not to connect to except I agree with not connecting with spammers and those with fake accounts. I definitely disagree about not connecting with open networkers. Open networkers may have huge networks that can help you find and connect with the right people in the right companies for your job search or business interests. Additionally many of them are very open to being helpful to you in your pursuit to connect with people.

 

I accept invitations to connect from all types of people -- open networkers, newbies to LinkedIn, salespeople, etc. and nearly 100% of the time I have found the connections to be beneficial or at least not a threat.

 

What does everyone else think?

Find a Job on LinkedIn: 7 Ways to Fix Your Profile | Get a Job Tips | Scoop.it

If you're in the market for a new job, today's hiring managers agree that one of the most important things you can do to improve your chances is be on LinkedIn.

 

"There are a lot of social networks," says Shilonda Downing, owner of Virtual Work Team LLC, a Homewood, Ill., human resources recruiting and staffing firm. She says LinkedIn is the go-to site for professionals and that, "These days, it's very important for your career to have a presence on the site because there's a high likelihood that wherever you're applying, the recruiters there use LinkedIn, too."

Using LinkedIn for 30 Minutes a Day

Using LinkedIn for 30 Minutes a Day | Get a Job Tips | Scoop.it

An issue that comes up regularly is about time. Everyone wonders how much time on LinkedIn (and on social mediain general) is enough time to devote to make it work and to produce successful results for your business.

 

The answer to the question is slightly subjective although it is a good idea to have some sort of time range in mind. You should figure that if you spend between 15 to 30 minutes a day on LinkedIn.

Raising Profiles's curator insight, March 30, 2013 11:30 AM

With the new LinkedIn search all you have to do is enter the keyword of your choice in the box and all the results will be displayed on one page and grouped by specific areas. I would advise selecting your target words carefully as any that are too generic will give you too many options - such is the power of this most powerful search engine platform.

LinkedIn is more than just Facebook in a business suit. It’s an online directory of your professional contacts, a self-updating rolodex, a powerful marketingoutlet, a professional search engine, and a searchable depository of industry news and insight.

 

Perhaps most importantly, LinkedIn allows for easy touches that build business and relationships. More and more professional services firms are starting to realize this, which may be why LinkedIn overtook Twitter and Facebook as the most popular social network for B2B marketers in 2012.
