Spent ages enrolling then found that I could not access information I wanted on a company unless I paid for it. Should have told me BEFORE enrolling that this was premium content, and I wouldn't have wasted my time.
Billed as 'Facebook for business', the whole LinkedIn experience is painful, confusing and annoying. I have tried to un-Linked-myself, but somehow just can't, so keep getting constant requests from people I don't now, don't want to know and am very unlikely to ever do any business with.
If you want some good networking contacts, get up, get out and go and speak to real people, not strange pushy wannabe's living hundreds of miles away!
Whilst I am sure I don't use LinkedIn to the maximum potential, I find it effective as a networking tool. Having a well maintained profile is great for potential clients to check me and my services out via the internet.
Jeg forstår princippet med at netværke, men hvis formålet er at få et job ud af linkedin, så er det jo nærmest helt umuligt indenfor min branche. Jeg har brugt linkedin professionelt i 3 år uden at komme til een eneste jobsamtale.
LinkedIn strengthens and extends your existing network of trusted contacts. LinkedIn is a networking tool that helps you discover inside connections to recommended job candidates, industry experts and business partners.
