You know how to network for jobs on LinkedIn. But do you know how to milk the site for story ideas, contact sources, get traffic for your stories and track the moves of top executives on your beat? We'll learn tips about the best ways to make use of LinkedIn as a journalist in a meeting at the company's Mountain View headquarters. The meeting starts with refreshments and schmoozing, then moves to a high-level presentation by LinkedIn's journalism community manager and San Francisco State University associate professor Yumi Wilson. And as a bonus, attendees will get 1 free year of LinkedIn Premium.

    Last minute bail. Mt View just not doable. Next time.

    I imagine it's a big place -- will there be signs up directing us which room to go to? Thanks

    I live in SF's civic center area and would be happy to take a couple of riders to this event. Email me at [masked].

      Hi Susy! I'm looking for a ride into Mountain View. I work at Montgomery and Bush and can meet you somewhere. Do you still have room?

      Yes. Just sent you an email.

  • Riddhi

    If anyone else has space in their car (I'd be happy to split gas etc) from SF, please let me know!

  • Sally L.

    I'll come if I can get out of an SF event on time, but it's iffy.

    I will be late, unfortunately, but hope to make it by 6:30-6:45.

    I caught Yumi Wilson's talk at NAB. She spoke a little about this. I'm excited to learn more.

    I'm sure LinkedIn has tools and uses well beyond what I've deployed thus far. Hope for intriguing discoveries...

    Looking forward to it!

    Let's get some carpools going. That way we can network on the way to the event. If you are in San Francisco or some other location far from Mountain View and would like a ride or can pick up a rider (in exchange for gas money), post those particulars here in this comment section.

    Still keeping this a yes, but the fact that it's in Mountain View makes it likely a no. I know LinkedIn's *in* Mountain View, and the meetup sounds great, but getting to Mountain View is too much of an annoyance and too time-consuming.

    Great idea

    Make the Most of Linked in-Tips would be useful.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
