I had already joined LinkedIn earlier but could not find/dedicate the time to have a good look at it. Now I did and I just updated my LinkedIn profile and invited some people from the past to join/endorse/recommend me. Quite curious as to what this will bring me and the contacts I´m having. It is using ´New Technology´, so I am bound to give it a go. Remarkably, and that´s a very encouraging sign, one of the collegaeus I asked for a recommendation replied within half an hour! Although he didn´t ask for it specifically I returned the favour. And that´s another encouraging sign!
