The Monday Morning WHIP // 152

As much as we’d like to say this week the WHIP is about Connect 4 and an upcoming tournament we’re holding at the next event, Stan (http://branddna NULL.blogspot NULL.com) has something else to say about con-network-ecting.

Since you left college how many people have you shown your work to?

Quite a lot I imagine.

Because whether you want to be a writer, designer, photographer, film maker or any other kind of creative, you need to show your stuff to people in order to get a look in at opportunities.

So out of all those people you’ve seen, how many of them have you connected with on Linkedin?

Yes Linkedin.

Not a lot I imagine.

Sure it may not seem as fun as Facebook or as witty as Twitter, but as far as your career goes Linkedin is where you should be focussing you your social networking efforts.

Because it enables you connect with people of influence. And through that, if you’re clever, see who else they’re connected to.

Just like you can on Facebook.

But rather than sharing party pix and dumb arse status updates, Linkedin is all about work.

And isn’t that, after all, where your efforts should really be aimed?
