As an active LinkedIn user part of my morning routine is a review of the previous days non-critical email notifications, including the prolific LinkedIn endorsements. Like manna springing forth from my network, I am greeted by endorsements for skills (and…

Even after you get your next job.
It never fails. After my customers land a job, they immediately abandon LinkedIn like it’s the plague. I’m always glad when they land, but beforehand I tell them, “When you get your next job, don’t leave LinkedIn. You may need it in the… Continue

In a world of increasingly complex technology, where we are more and more connected each day and our every move is documented online, why is it that so many people have a ‘blind spot’ for their LinkedIn profile? You would be hard pressed to find someone that doesn’t regularly update a Facebook,… Continue

Someone I know; and is highly respected in the Talent Acquisition / Social Media space, mentioned the other day on Twitter that she had received a Valentines card through LinkedIn. She was rightly offended, as that's an inappropriate use of LinkedIn.
It got me thinking about how some people can be inappropriate in their use of Social… Continue

As part of my never-ending battle with fake LinkedIn profiles, I noticed that during the overnight, "Eng.Yusif Ibrahim" reached out to connect. Fabulous.
According to his profile, Mr. Ibrahim is "Retired" and in Libya, having worked in "Government Administration."
Since this profile smelled like a pile of rotting fish, I image searched this fellow; nothing of note came up on the first page,… Continue

Do you think that Genentech is aware that someone with a fake LinkedIn profile pic is "working" for them in Sales? Same here - but since I recently tweeted this out, perhaps they WILL know and reach out to their LinkedIn rep and ask the tough questions about fake profiles.

I knew finding a job was hard work, but I had never imagined that it would be this hard. I have always believed in creating my own source of income, working for myself, and running the business how I wanted it to be ran. Sure I worked part time at a few grocery stores for extra money, but for the most part, I have always created my own source of income. Over this past year however, I decided that I would have to get a "real" job, because I no longer had enough money to continue building my… Continue

CEOs at these companies sent me connection requests today. Smelling a rat, I simply checked out the company's employee profiles on LinkedIn and discovered multiple CEOs on staff. Wow - that's some retained search bill!

[this is the actual message I sent to LinkedIn when reporting this profile this morning]
More, more, more. Every day dear LinkedIn, come a new batch of fake profiles, fake profiles attached to “companies” (like GreyCampus). Why? Likely culling our private information and selling it to… Continue

Despite how social recruitment is as an industry, many agencies and consultants are making big mistakes in the ways they share news through social networks.

Please note, that I think that inviting others for no good reason is NOT appropriate.)
Part One. Reasons to Connect

A few years ago, secretaries served a basic purpose in a business.
They answered phones and greeted visitors. It was often considered an entry-level position with no experience required.
