Show Notes

Are you proud of the number of connections you have on LinkedIn? Is this a metric you wish to cultivate? If so, can you definitively explain the value of having a thousand connections? If you can, you should consider becoming a LinkedIn Open Networker, or LION. We all know that special person who just “knows everyone.” When we have a question about something specific, we ask that person for a contact, and he or she just pulls one up, having built a Rolodex of the right people. In this episode, I talk about how becoming a LION has its benefits. Topics covered in "Becoming a LinkedIn LION": - LinkedIn - Executive Job Search - Networking - Relationships
