How do you introduce yourself to people you meet in business?
I try to come across first as a PERSON and second as a business owner facing the same challenges YOU face in today's 'War for Talent'. The LAST thing I want to convey is that I am a salesperson. Yes I sell to companies. Yes I sell to passive candidate talent, but I am not a salesperson. I am a problem solver. I ask deep, thought-provoking questions, I uncover pain, I introduce ideas, I uncover hidden opportunities, I find win-win solutions, and I do it consistently.
I am a true believer in 'Service to Others'. There can be no winner or loser in the relationships I help create. Talk is cheap. Everyone says the same thing. The real proof is in the results. I truly enjoy troubleshooting and solving problems for those in my circle, whether those people are client companies, passive candidate talent, fellow staffing & recruiting colleagues, or other entrepreneurs.

I am the “Admin” for the Recruiters On LinkedIn group. You have recently joined and this is a "welcome" to the group and "here is how it works".
Over the past year I have been experimenting how best to facilitate members being able to connect with each other. Some want to connect with everyone and some are looking for a few meaningful connections.
1-2 times per week I send a group introduction message with 10-15 new members and reintroducing others.
What this means for you is simple, do you wish to be introduced to the group?
You have 4 options from which to choose:
(A) “Open Networker” with name, email address, and LinkedIn URL as you want to connect with anyone and everyone.
(B) “General Introduction” with name and LinkedIn URL as you are specific about who you want to connect with.
(C) “Lurker” no announcement will be made as you want to be on the sidelines connecting with people as you wish.
(D) “Super Open Networker” which is (A) plus having your contact information on the group page.
A caution on the “Open Networker”, you may be inundated with invitations to connect. For some this is exactly what they are hoping for and others this could be a pain.
I do ask, if you receive invitations from members you do not want to connect with that you “Archive” the message versus “I don’t know” so the sender is not penalized by LinkedIn although how you handle this is up to you.
Again your options are (A), (B), (C), (D).
Please include your LinkedIn URL and email address you prefer to receive invitations and send to email@example.com
