  • 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 cover social media. Similarly, many people are wondering just how much time they need to spend ...

  • 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 this LinkedIn Answers question, which then led me to the following blog post. It looked cool ...

  • 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 networks, and I don’t use them all in the same manner, so the guidelines that I follow are ...

  • 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 bridge the gap between the free service and the $20+/month offerings.   And I am ...

  • 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 job opportunities.  These are all surmountable issues. In the past few weeks, I’ve read ...

  • 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 people continue to clamor for on LinkedIn.  Each member has space for blogs and for an ...

  • 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 corporate climate, this happens far more than it should, but thankfully, there are things you ...

  • 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 graphical overhaul of the User Interface. So far, I'm liking the new interface, which takes a ...

  • 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 some long-awaited changes, such as the ones I compiled last ...

  • 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 than one LinkedIn account.  I continue to see lots of questions from people who have ...

  • 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 to come out to Livingston, NJ the first Tuesday of every month. A Yahoo! group has been created ...

  • 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 of my accepting these invitations is rather small. This is primarily because managing a ...

  • 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 to do more of them -- at least once per quarter, if not once per month. Looking ...

  • 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, either because they helped you or because you could provide some assistance for ...

  • 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 network of contacts that is necessary for advancing ones career.   Not ...
