Linked In

I have a Linked In account. Despite the fact that I'm on it through both my professional and personal e-mail accounts, the two seem to dovetail.

My question now is, what does Linked In actually DO for me? I see that a lot of people post their resumes there. I will do this later, at a point in the future to be determined due to circumstances beyond my control or comprehension.

I've found it useful to reconnect with old business contacts. It's a good networking tool in that sense.

I am not truly sure it does me any good, and I don't have old business contacts there with whom I'm not already connected. But it is occasionally fun to find out where college classmates wound up, and I guess it's another way to get my business out there.

I may, in the next while, explore it a bit more.

One of my colleagues was recently laid off. I've been trying to refer her to positions in the greater Los Angeles area. A couple of prospective employers have remarked that they examine her Linkedin account. So I guess that people do pay attention to these things.

I have an account under "real" name. Send me an invite.

I'm still trying to figure out what it is good for. It looks useful.

I've found it useful for finding old business contacts. I've also occasionally used the "what are you working on" to post requests for ideas. For example:

[Catherine is] currently looking for good online Six Sigma Green Belt classes. Any suggestions?

I got four.

I use my personal e-mail account only. Send me an invite if you'd like.
