I wrote about LinkedIn this week and about how to subscribe to RSS feeds for the Answers section. Before I published the post, my friend Hannah Morgan, AKA @careersherpa, contacted me to ask if I’dÃ‚Â contribute a suggestion to help readers find great people to connect with on LinkedIn.
There are so many great ways, but since I had LinkedIn’s Answers on the brain, I replied:
Using LinkedIn’s Answers is one way to expandÃ‚Â potential connections. Often, when I ask a question, people who answer it will request to connect, or if I answer a question, people who asked it may request that we “link in.” If you are asking and answering questions related to your field, you may “meet” people who could be great networking contacts you wouldn’t otherwise know.
A lot of our colleagues offered great ideas to help you find people via LinkedIn on Hannah’s blog. Be sure to visit CareerSherpa.com for all the suggestions!
