  • As a job searcher, we all know how valuable it is to build and develop your network

    Purpose is to get everyone on the same page on capabilities and features to help your job search or just stay connected to your network

    Both demo and a reference document

    How to set up as well as some advanced features

    I am not an expert….just a job searching using all the available tools at my disposal.

    I am also not a LinkedIn presenter. I constructed this to help out some fellow job seekers and as such have been asked to present it today

  • Social media is like teen sex.Everyone wants to do it. Nobody knows how.When it’s finally done there is surprise it’s not better. Avinash Kaushik, Analytics Evangelist, Google

  • Officially, social media is “an umbrella term that defines the various activities that integrate technology, social interaction, and the construction of words, pictures, videos, and audio.”
    http://www.wikipedia.org
  • It’s also a fancy way to describe the zillions of conversations people are having online 24/7.http://www.flickr.com/photos/11739182@N03/1263985679/

  • BECAUSE 3 OUT OF 4 AMERICANS USE SOCIAL TECHNOLOGY.
  • BECAUSE 2/3 OF THE GLOBAL INTERNET POPULATION
    VISIT SOCIAL NETWORKS.
  • BECAUSE VISITING SOCIAL SITES IS NOW THE 4TH MOST POPULAR ONLINE ACTIVITY—AHEAD OF PERSONAL EMAIL.
  • Because time spent on social networks is growing at 3X the overall Internet rate, accounting for ~10% of all Internet time.
  • Because social media is democratizing communications. Big time.
  • BECAUSE SOCIAL MEDIA IS LIKE WORD OF MOUTH ON STEROIDS.
  • Classmates.com started in 1995

    LinkedIn has positioned itself to be the social networking site for business connections to promote services, help build professional connections, and assist job seekers and recruiters. While My Space and Facebook have been compared to a Friday night at the bar of a cocktail hour in meeting people, LinkedIn has been compared to the business professional group breakfast meeting.
  • It is said that MySpace is the Frat party kegger, Facebook is the picnic with family and friends while LinkedIN is the Breakfast networking meeting.

    It’s all about another way to Network & Connect!!

  • Its all about the second degree!! Talk about the numbers

    A virtual professional networking tool driven through users’ trusted contacts, built upon referral-only contacts with the ability to request introductions to job candidates, industry experts, business partners and potential job leads.
    Based on the six degrees of separation; refers to the concept that everyone is connected to everyone else in the world by only six degrees of separation, or six sets of acquaintances. (Kevin Bacon theory)
    Everyone has their own philosophy about building their network on LinkedIn
    Very similar to traditional “networking” in the sense that your reputation is on the line based upon who is in your network and who you may be asked to recommend or refer.

    Much like traditional networking, you get out what you put in.
  • Also can show:
    Brand
    Interests
    Great stuff about you that doesn’t fit on a two page resume
    Groups and associations you belong to

    Change from default link to your “name”
    Find Connections
    Colleges
    Work
    Clients &Customer Contacts
    Business Partners
    Professional Contacts / Organizations
    People in your address book

    What makes your profile complete?
    Your current position
    Two past positions
    Your education
    Your profile summary
    A profile photo
    Your specialties
    At least three recommendations

    Photo or not?
    A photo puts a friendly human behind a name and job title.
    A photo adds warmth and color to an otherwise neutral box.
    A photo delivers the message that you are putting yourself out there, not standing back in the shadows.
    A photo demonstrates confidence that you feel good about yourself

  • Remember, You need to build your first degree before you can get to the second degree!!
  • Can search by person, company, industry, keyword

    Will show job title of those further out
  • Goal is to build your network

    To build your network have to search out people that are already members and “get connected”

    Connection can be thru school, professional associations, friends.

    My philosophy is that I must be ble to describe this individuals qualities and/or talents to someone who wants to meet them.
  • You can view anyone’s contact list who is in YOUR contact list
    Filtering mechanism by company, tags, industry, etc.

    Number shows number of connections they have
    Circle shows it is new
  • Going outside your immediate network
  • In this case, you could use mutual contact as a referal
  • User can decide whether or not to make contact….but you are introduced by a trusted contact

    Use Inmail if more than three degrees away.
  • Why is this a better way to make contact?

    You are introduced by your TRUSTED connections

    Recipient decides whether or not to make contact with you

    You can also find leads based on search criteria

    Look at the CRM capabilities as well
