  1. Hi Barbara, good resource list, must have taken quite some time to compile.

    Stumbled it for you:

  2. Hi Jacob!

    Thanks so much for the stumble – I appreciate it! Glad you like the list as well.

    Best wishes, Barbara

  3. Barbara,

    Great list.

    You’ve got “The LinkedIn Personal Trainer” listed, and the website is also a free resource.

    I cover additional material, answer user questions, and offer a free tip sheet based on my introductory talk about LinkedIn.

    RSS and email subscriptions to the column are available: http://www.linkedinpersonaltrainer.com

  4. Hi Steve,

    Thanks so much for the added information! I greatly appreciate it.

    Best wishes, Barbara

  5. Barbara, Here is a resource you might have missed!Cool-Tool: Searchable Collection of 2400 LinkedIn Groups http://tinyurl.com/5ouh57

  6. Hi Jim!

    Nope, it’s there! 8th one down from Step 5. It’s a great resource!!

    Thanks for the tip, Barbara

  7. Hi Barbara,

    That is an impressive collection. I may have missed things that are there in your list but here’s what I have used and I’d like to offer:

    * The new groups functionality. It makes the Group Directory on yahoo groups obsolete. You can search groups by keywords and they appear in the order of their size. You can search within a group and find members by keyword.

    * This came along with the new “send” functionality. You can send messages to people who are in the same group as you, and not necessarily connected with you. Not all members are open to receive messages this way but many are. Unlike inmails, “sends” are not limited and are free of charge.

    * The groups discussions. You can post any questions, messages or simply post your profile, you will get invited.

    * LinkedIn can be searched from Google (or other search engines), like this:
    -intitle:directory -intitle:answers site:linkedin.com

    Here are some concrete examples (used on Google+Broadlook Diver)

    And two pieces that have been on LI for a while:

    * Downloadable LinkedIn outlook bar. It lets you see profiles of people who email to you, to whom you have sent emails and who you save in your contact folder. Have an email address, find the profile. Very useful.

    * LinkedIn Answers. Do an interesting post, get noticed.

    Irina Shamaeva,

  8. Barbara,
    Thanks kindly for your super nice words and for including my groups as part of your excellent resource for Recruiters (and others).

    Quick note regarding Step 4: the name of my primary group on Ning is My Linking Power Forum. It’s located here: http://MyLinkingPowerForum.ning.com

    (Even I have trouble keeping My Virtual Power Forum, My Linking Power Forum, and My Linkedin Power Forum straight! :-) )

    Now: What can we do for *YOU*, Barbara? :-)

    Keep STRONG!
    Vincent Wright

  9. Wow, what a super list of ideas!! Thanks so much for adding them.

    Best wishes,


  10. Hi Vincent!

    Thanks for the input – I’ll fix it. And as to what you can do for me…I’ll drop you an email. :) Thanks for asking!

    Best wishes, Barbara
