And has LinkedIn been helpful to you Don, finding new business, employing people and so forth?
Note that Engineers Australia is holding a webinar on Sept 21st called “Building Your Brand via LinkedIn”; you can register at
And do I use LinkedIn?
‘Fraid not! I prefer to remain out of sight and thinking about circuits rather than networks.
Perhaps as a response to owning my own business, I don’t feel the need to keep my recruitment profile polished…
I’d be interested in other peoples’ experiences with this social networking site for professional people.

We do find Linked In useful. Not so much for the personal career promotion side (which they seem to be pushing – which is not what we want from it).
Once we identify a company that we think we might be able to offer value to we use linked in to try to find the right person to talk to and see if they know someone who could refer us to them.
I like to think of Linked in as the more serious flip side to facebook – but not that serious.
