It is vital in any economic situation to have a network to be able to fall back on, or build upon. New opportunities are now open to you, thanks to the Internet. The most valuable website giving you networking support on a professional level is LinkedIn.
Over 34 million people (and this number is growing) now have a profile on LinkedIn and also a few Connections. The question that most people ask is: what does this website have that I can use to my advantage? And also: how can I use LinkedIn in a way that gives me results without my having to spend too much time on it?
“How to REALLY use LinkedIn”, written by networking expert Jan Vermeiren , shows you why LinkedIn is such a powerful tool for everybody to use. Not only that, it also presents a short and effective step-by-step plan for people to apply to get immediate results. And you don’t need any special expertise to begin.
This book contains advanced strategies for finding new customers, a new job, employees, suppliers, experts and people to help you get your job done faster. It gives the answers to frequently asked questions and an overview of little-known LinkedIn features. There’s also a list of free tools that help you save time when using LinkedIn. All this makes it the perfect manual to REALLY get going with using LinkedIn.
“Finally, someone can explain the usefulness of LinkedIn. As a typical Gen X'er, I was starting to get frustrated at hearing more and more people talking about the advantages and the fun of being Linked In. Once I got it, I immediately created a profile and started connecting. And if I can do it, so can anybody else!”
Hubert Vanhoe, Vice President, USG People Belgium
