Get the Most Out of Your LinkedIn Profile

LinkedIn For Dummies4 Ways to Get the Most Out of Your LinkedIn Profile
LinkedIn is one of the better—if not the best—online resources for professionals looking to network with other professionals, find employment, or be discovered by recruiters and hiring managers.
If utilized in full, LinkedIn could help ensure you don’t spend too much time unemployed since you’re likely to attract the best of the best in the hiring world.
Are you interested in improving your profile? Here are just a few things you could do the next time you’re signed in that could help strengthen your page:
1. Personalize your profile URL: This may not seem like a big deal, but personalizing your LinkedIn URL (e.g., www.linkedin.com/in/johndoe) lends to your credibility and strengthens your brand. It also makes you easier to find on the site, especially if recruiters want to conduct a quick search and are hoping that typing your name in the URL will do the trick. What do you have to lose? The quick change could make a world of difference.
2. Add links to your other Web sites: In order to make the most of your profile and build your brand, it’s important to add links that point to your other professional ventures. Whether you’re linking to a blog, your Twitter page, or your professional Web site (www.johndoe.com), it’s important to show visitors that you’re more of a dynamic prospect than what is seen on your LinkedIn page.
3. Fully develop your profile: If you still have sections of your profile you need to complete, it’s time to get this done. A 100 percent complete profile includes your current position, at least two past positions, your educational background, profile summary and photo, specialties, and at least three recommendations. You want candidate seekers to have the information they want to know about you at their fingertips. If they don’t, they’re likely to move on to the next candidate who makes their information more readily available.
4. Proofread your profile: When you showcase yourself as a professional in your field, first impressions mean everything. So if you have typos in your profile or get a company name wrong, you’re asking for someone to correct you—pretty embarrassing, right? To prevent this from happening, be sure to proofread, proofread, and proofread again until you’re sure there are no errors. The good news is you can change the profile anytime you like, so feel free to proofread often!
LinkedIn is such an amazing tool that you want to try your best to use everything it has to offer. If you don’t, you’re cheating yourself out of the great opportunities a well-crafted profile could provide.

Save the Internet

Join the fight for Internet Freedom

http://attmobile.savetheinternet.com/?source=STIhomepage
Don't Believe ATT’s Fairy Tale: Tell Washington to stop the merger AT&T wants you to believe that its takeover of T-Mobile would be good for jobs, innovation and the economy, while saving you hundreds of dollars on your mobile bills.

Don't believe the fairy tale. If this deal goes through, just two companies, AT&T and Verizon, would control nearly 80 percent of the mobile market in America. With too few choices, mobile phone users would face higher prices, poorer service, and less innovation.

Apple Inc. should disclose its succession plans for Chief Executive Steve Jobs, an influential proxy advisory firm said in a report backing a shareholder proposal.

Institutional Shareholder Services said all companies should have succession plans in place, and Apple shareholders would benefit by having a report on the company's succession plans disclosed annually.
"Such a report would enable shareholders to judge the board on its readiness and willingness to meet the demands of succession planning based on the circumstances at that time," ISS said. Apple wasn't available to comment.

I've been a fan of Whitney since the Whitney Houston Album. When I played "Saving All My Love" I fell in love with Whitney and her music.

How Egypt disconnected the Internet

Temple of Nefertiti, Abu Simbel - 24"x36" Poster
"Government officials called Internet Service Providers, and the ISPs simply changed their traffic flow configurations to stop international connections. Providers in Egypt, beginning with government-owned Telecom Egypt, started turning off their networks at around midnight Thursday. There are only four large ISPs in Egypt, and so it wouldn't take a lot of phone calls to bring the system to a standstill. By Friday night, 93 percent of Egypt's networks were not reachable, according to Renesys."
