A friend recently contacted me to ask forÃ‚Â help for one of his clients. His dilemma? The client had created a LinkedIn profile, but he didn’t remember the password AND he had used a work email address only to set up the profile. Unfortunately, he was no longer at the job and did not have access to the email account that LinkedIn would use to send him a reset password!
While LinkedIn customer service might be able to help, it is a good reminder to everyone – DON’T use an email address that you won’t always have access to when you sign up for social networks. Instead, set up a Gmail or other “take with you” account as the primary address and add your current work mails as additionals. That way, you’ll never be locked out of your OWN profile!
