I thought I’d share a recent post I wrote for The Salary Reporter blog on PayScale.com because it’s getting a lot of attention online and just in case any blog followers haven’t see it yet.
You can read Does Size Matter? It Does When It Comes to Your LinkedIn Network in its entirety there, but below is an excerpt and a follow up tweet with a link to a new LinkedIn feature that helps with growing your network:
Did you know that many of today’s job postings list “having more than 250 LinkedIn connections” as a qualification for an ideal candidate? This is especially true in business development, social media management or fundraising positions. And, not surprisingly, more and more employers believe that having a robust professional network connotes success and an ability to connect with others.
Here’s the follow-up tweet and a tip about a new feature LinkedIn added too!
