I know where you went to school and where you live. I know the things that interest you and the things that are important to you. I know all of this about you without my ever having to ask.

by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - Jan, 2014

by Mindy Thomas - Jan, 2014
Why? It’s simply a no brainer. The funny thing is, no matter how many times I read an article or a blog post touting the validity and importance of LinkedIn, I end up befuddled by the resistance of this networking and job search tool.
