I was initially a bit wary; I already have over 1,300 connections on the site.  But besides being thoroughly entertained, I learned several LinkedIn secrets that turned my perspective about the purpose and potential of the site around.  This mega networking machine is a great way to promote a business.  It is a communication powerhouse that cannot be ignored.  And there is no doubt, that for anyone searching for a career change, it is the premiere go to social media tool available today.  John’s expertise is well documented both on his website at www.selfrecruiter.com and in his book “Self Recruiter® Changing the Rules.”
