LinkedIn is a dream tool (for now). Having the ability to view up to date resumes (or profiles), being automatically notified of job changes, being connected through contacts/groups, etc. is a recruiters Nirvana. But like anything that works, you have to work it. However, being a public company can often times cloud decisions making them based on quarterly numbers rather then core. Where are they going and what will they look like in 12 months?

If you fill in the blanks above, astute people will know that the topic of the week is part 1 dedicated to L*nked*n (oh, its just too much fun writing it this way). “I” see the topic as one of those covered by many “Experts” but followed by few, as everyone has…Continue
