“Many people are beginning to truly understand the strategic networking power of LinkedIn, but it’s surprising how few have adopted good habits when constructing and maintaining their LinkedIn profiles. Personal branding and sending a concise message to people who visit your profile is critical.

It’s funny, but after the work I did yesterday, I had seven hits from colleagues who were seeing me “surface” again. – Will
