The problem is that this little tid-bit of data you’re leaving off makes it hard for your audience to figure out what you do. In fact, my eye often goes to a profile’s Industry before I decide to accept a connection request or reply to an InMail. The Industry provides the context needed for someone to relate to...

LinkedIn is a great tool for professionals. It offers the opportunity to network with others in your field, and it can be a great tool for finding job leads—and even getting hired.

That includes routine actions, casual habits, and how, what and to whom you communicate. Too often, the speed of work causes us to quickly craft a message or reply without awareness of its trust-diminishing or enhancing dynamics.
