This group has combined forces with another successful business-centric networking group called The Edmonton "Linked-In" Business & Social Network (www.meetup.com/LinkedinEDMONTON)
Most of the 550+ strong members of that group are invited by EXISTING members to ensure the quality of the membership remains high. All member profiles will be reviewed to ensure all MANDATORY QUESTIONS are answered. Non-compliant member profiles will be removed from the group.
The managers of this group reserve the right to limit the number of members in any given profession in this group to maintain maximum value for its existing committed membership.
PLEASE ENSURE YOU HAVE A LINKEDIN.COM PROFILE! This is mandatory!
IMPORTANT: a "professional-style photo" (head shot style) is required. To maintain the professionalism of the group, family photos, "couples photos", "pet photos", or photos not of yourself are not permitted. Cartoon or caricature-style photos are not permitted.
With complaints about Facebook being an "unprofessional" forum to develop business connections, LinkedIn has become the "Facebook of Business".
LinkedIn is a business oriented social networking site, mainly used for professional networking.
LinkedIn is an online network of more than 300 million experienced professionals from around the world in more than 200 countries & territories, representing over 150 industries.
When you join, you create a profile that summarizes your professional accomplishments. Your profile helps you find and be found by former colleagues, clients, and partners. You can add more connections by inviting trusted contacts to join LinkedIn and connect to you.
Your network consists of your connections, your connections' connections, and the people they know, linking you to thousands of qualified professionals.
Through your network:
* Find potential clients, service providers, subject experts, and partners who come recommended
* Be found for business opportunities
* Search for great jobs
* Discover inside connections that can help you land jobs and close deals
* Get introduced to other professionals through the people you know
* ...and more!
