The text that you include in your profile is searchable. So, if you're looking for
work in a particular area, such as telecommunications, be sure to add this information.
LinkedIn offers subscribers a remarkably fast way to grow their networks. When I
joined LinkedIn, about 14 of my colleagues asked to link with me, and I asked to link with some of them. By degrees I expanded my link network to hundreds of
