  • Linkedin is a white pages directory of professionals. One of the most successful online. Here is how it works.
  • When you join Linkedin you are asked to enter your career history – what you do, where you have been and where you want to go.
  • Linkedin then asks you who you know (enter names or email addresses, it tells you who is using Linkedin). You will be surprised.
  • Connect to the people you know and then they can see each other. They find out they have you in common.
  • And you can see their contacts too.
  • In fact you can see their contacts contacts – three levels of separation. Also, because no. 2 is a trusted contact of my trusted contact no.1, I can check him out with confidence, and perhaps be introduced.
  • He becomes my contact too, and I can see his contacts contacts. This is how we build a network online. It is important to remember that each of these nodes is a professional, known to those who know you. Here is an example.
  • So I found Patrick online, but is that all you can do with your ever growing Linkedin Network? Well, you can also ask them for help direct, by asking questions. Linkedin even has a special section for this. Here is an important question I asked my network.
