Making the Most of Social and Professional Networking
As social/professional networking continues to proliferate, users and organizations alike, seek to find the ways to make the most of the growing trend.  A recent infographic shows just how complicated it can be for marketing departments to try and Read More...
My Resume Cloud
Today, I came across a very interesting tool for generating a word cloud – basically, a visual representation of the frequency of words in a block of text, just as you might find in the tag cloud of a blog.  I was first made aware of this tool from Read More...
Why Won’t You Accept My Network Connection Request?
I recently read an article by Meg Guiseppi entitled, “ 14 Reasons I Won’t Follow You on Twitter ” , and I found that I shared many of her views on what constitutes a good network connection on Twitter . In my case, however, I am a member of multiple social Read More...
Continuing My Quest for More LinkedIn Improvements
It’s been almost 16 months since my last LinkedIn Feature Request post , and thankfully, the folks at LinkedIn have not been sitting idly by. No, they still haven’t brought back the Personal Plus membership (or a reasonable $5-10/month alternative) to Read More...
Job Hunting in the 21st Century
In 2009, there is no time to complain about how tight and unfair the job market is, or how hard it is to get a resume in the door.  There is no more room for complaining about unqualified people using their personal or family connections to get into Read More...
More Professional Networking...
I recently came across another Professional Networking site called Marzar because of a question and answer session on LinkedIn Answers . Of course, I joined to see if it is worthy of any hype, and so far, I think it has many of the little things which Read More...
Working for a terrible boss
Yeah, over the years I've had a few of those, but that's not where I find myself today.  Instead, that's the subject of a very interesting question on LinkedIn Answers that asks how people have dealt with this situation. Unfortunately, in today's Read More...
My Updated LinkedIn Feature Requests
The month of February 2008 was a very busy one at LinkedIn , it seems.  A number of improvements and modifications were made to the site , including network upgrades which now show Group Membership changes, a much maligned News function, and a major Read More...
Random Notes on a Leap Day
I have a little bit of everything to share today. Professional Networking LinkedIn has performed quite a few upgrades in recent days, and they've upgraded their site quite a bit. It looks nice, I must say. I hope this is just the beginning of them implementing Read More...
Dealing with Duplicate Accounts in LinkedIn
Okay, for the next few weeks, I'll probably be on a little LinkedIn kick, to make up for some lost time over the past few months.  The real purpose of this post, however, is to help people identify and address problems that come from having more Read More...
Another LinkedIn Live Event
I finally had the chance to attend another live networking event of NJ LinkedIn members , similar to the one I attended back in October . If you're in the NY/NJ metro area, and would like to enjoy a casual networking event once a month, then feel free Read More...
Notched Up: A different perspective on recruiting
As you may well know by now, I am a huge proponent of the LinkedIn Network . On account of my many LinkedIn connections, I routinely receive a fair number of invitations to join other business or social networks. For a variety of reasons, the likelihood Read More...
LinkedIn Live...
On Tuesday, I went to a LinkedIn gathering that was put together by some Northern NJ members of LinkedIn. It was a pretty decent event, and I got to meet some very nice and interesting people. It was my first such event, and I'm pretty sure that I'm going Read More...
What I Need From LinkedIn
As I wrote way back in May 2007 concerning LinkedIn , it is an awesome tool that greatly facilitates Professional Networking. The LinkedIn Answers feature, for instance, is a very nice way to find people who you might be interested in connecting with, Read More...
Staying LinkedIn: Professional Networking
I have to admit that it took me quite some time to get the hang of the whole professional networking thing, as assisted by technology. Until 2003, I hadn't really taken a whole lot of time to network with peers on a professional level, or build a useful Read More...
