My husband got a new job. Yes, you are reading an article about getting started on LinkedIn, just bear with me a minute. He transitioned from being a mason, to a project manager at his company. He said goodbye to the trowel and hello to an office. With that office came this strange new thing, called social networking.
Now my husband is a bright guy, in fact, that’s why he landed this cool new job, but when it comes to the internet, and social networking he hasn’t a clue. Let’s just say it would be like me trying to read his blueprints, it’s not happening. Soon after he was established in the office, he started getting requests – LinkedIn requests. Not knowing what LinkedIn was all about, he’d just accept the invitation and go on with his day.
Does that sound like you? Many business professionals are doing the same thing. In fact, their profiles look just like my husband’s – no profile picture, no bio, and a few connections. So for all those business professionals who need a little help getting started on LinkedIn, this is for you.
