Cindy’s LinkedIn topic from last month gave us a wonderful overview on the program. She showed us basic setup and operation of this Facebook type media. The following is a shortened excerpt from this link: Click here.

LinkedIn is the Facebook for business and business people. It allows us to connect with our work friends, old colleagues and you can see where they work and where they have been. LinkedIn is your online Resume which showcases your abilities and recommendations. Currently 20 million people are on LinkedIn.

Here are five good reasons for a LinkedIn account:

1. Expand your network significantly and create more work opportunities by joining groups and discussions on various topics that you are interested in.
2. Showcase your work experience, but more important, your work achievements and recommendations from your work colleagues and clients.
3. Let other companies headhunt, and contact you, faster and more accurately.
4. Find out where your friends work or who works at a better company and get directly introduced by one of your network contact.
5. Keeping up with the new options that are being added on a regular basis. Sync it with TripIt, PowerPoint’s, Amazon, twitter or your personal blog.

Doing business and finding more business opportunities has never been this easy.

Be sure to tell your friends and co-workers. All interested parties are invited. We’ll have light refreshments on hand. Join us at 5:30 pm at the Henrico County Government Center (Human Services Building). The address is 8600 Dixon Powers Drive, Henrico, VA 23228.
