LinkedIn is underutilized. It's an amazingly powerful tool for professional networking. Once you master it, the right kinds of opportunities manifest much more readily.
In this slide deck I cover what LinkedIn is, the essentials of the professional Profile, and how to tweak your account settings to restrict who can see what. I then focus on how to get yourself noticed. I conclude with several real-world scenarios -- specific to the audience I spend my days helping, namely technical content developers (tech writers, editors, trainers, and marcom writers) -- detailing how to use LinkedIn for best effect in different contexts.
