What many people fail to realise about Linkedin is that it is a great platform to ask and answer questions, about different industries, jobs and other career related questions. Being active in the questions section also helps you get notices in your particular niche or field. Always remember to check the profile of the person whose question you are answering. You don’t want to waste time on a spam profile. Also use the advance search to check if your question or a similar one has already been answered before posting a question.
It is always good to back up all your important connections that you have amassed over time on Linkedin. Go to Contact from the header toolbar. At the bottom right of your ‘My Connections’ windows, you will find an option to “Export Connections”. you canchoose to export the connections as a CSV file and import them into your prefered address book like Outlook or even as VCards for your mobile phone.
