I need a guide on how to work LinkedIn. Not a how to USE LinkedIn guide, but a guide on what I should be doing on there to make it worthwhile somehow.
Here’s the deal.
Long ago, I built a LinkedIn profile, because, well… that’s what you were supposed to do. Then, I added to it here and there, and I added everyone on there that was on it when I joined up, and… that’s it.
Since then, I get invitations when someone else I know happens to join LinkedIn, but they don’t really seem to know what to do with it either. Recently, I was “endorsed” by some people I respect, and not only do I not know what that means, I don’t know how to do it back, or if it really matters.
Long story short, I know how to click all of the buttons on LinkedIn and I know how to setup my profile, check it out: ArcticLlama on LinkedIn, but I don’t really know how to work it, or what to do with it, or if I should really even care. Maybe it would be more obvious if the people that I do know were more active on it.
Anyway, has anyone seen a useful guide that does not start with, “First, pick a username,” because that would be helpful.
P.S. Does anyone know how to gramatically end a sentence that is a question, but ends with a non-question quote? For example, from above:
Has anyone seen a useful guide that does not start with, “First, pick a username?”
That seems to follow the proper punctuation, but it seems very stupid because the quote is not a question, while putting the ? outside of the quotes would require an ending like …username,”?
