LinkedIn "People Also Viewed"
Most of us use LinkedIn to network professionally, but a colleague recently told me people were using it to check women out. Try looking at my LinkedIn profile, www.linkedin.com/in/bertshima. Look on the right side under “People Also Viewed” and you’ll see a diverse…Continue

When organizations talk about implementing social media into their recruitment marketing strategies, most often times they are not really sure to start. In many cases, they begin to talk to their existing recruitment technology providers to see how to start. The thing with this is that in many cases recruitment technology does not provide any more value to the free social media tools that marketing…Continue

How in the world can I stop the onslaught of Endorsement notifications that are filling my LinkedIn updates stream?
This has been a popular topic ever since LinkedIn announced the ability to endorse connections.
