LinkedIn magic...

Recently I've been having a lot of conversations with individuals about the value (or not) of LinkedIn. It's really quite surprising how much people don't know about LinkedIn. Most people assume that LinkedIn is simply a place where you can post your work experience (CV) connect with a few people and that's it.

In reality LinkedIn has a lot more to offer and you don't need to be a wizard to start using these features. If you're a BIALL member you can read my thoughts about LinkedIn in the next newsletter. I'll link to the article on here once it's live on the BIALL website. In the meantime if you don't use LinkedIn or use it but aren't sure about some of the extra features you could be using I recommend having a look at the LinkedIn Learning site

Jack Vinson has also written an article on his blog Knowledge Jolt with Jack called "Things I've learned about LinkedIn recently" this has some really good tips on how to make the most of LinkedIn and some useful tips on updating your profile.

    Lawyers can learn a lot about how best to use LinkedIn from Chrissie Lightfoot, whose excellent book The Naked Lawyer has a section devoted to it.
