Networking with Potential Clients...LinkedIn

Have many of you heard of Linked in? I had heard of it, but didn't really know what it was about until just a few weeks ago. Linked in is sort of like a social networking website, but it's for both employers/clients and freelancers/professionals looking for work. Your profile consists of your work history, education and resume information. You can advertise what skills you have and what sort of job you are looking for whether it be graphic design, freelance writing, photography, anything you like. You network with others, meet new people, join groups where you can come together with possible job opportunities and get advice from others.

This is my Linked in page. Feel free to look it over and add me to your network if you decide to join or if you already have an account. You can also add your blog feed to your page and portfolios of your work. I'm still pretty new to Linked in, but it looks to have a lot of potential so far.

If you have had any luck with Linked in, feel free to leave a comment and tell us about it and offer some advice.

I've always been a little curious about how Linked In works. Thanks for explaining it all.
