Another Toy: LinkedIn

weather: sunny
outside: 14.8°C
mood: ...
So, the latest toy is LinkedIn. I'm in there under my maiden name. You're very welcome to add me if you're so inclined. The e-mail address is my first name at gmail dot com =)


I caved. *bibble* I was resisting joining yet another online toy just to play for a while and then have no idea what to do with afterwards. But it seems to be very accommodating for resumé-like info and I've always thought it was a good idea to have a copy of the resumé ready to go at any time anyway.

I've found a lot of people I know/knew... including a lot of LJers on my Friends List and people not on my Friends List. Yeah, I'm connected to a lot more people than that, I'm just not sure what the protocol is for adding people. Granted, the user base should be a lot more mature than certain other networkie sites, but still... when I go to add someone, I hesitate, like "What if they don't _want_ to be associated with me? What if they don't want my piddly recommendation?" =P

I took the opportunity to write some recommendations for people I'd worked with in the past, people who I enjoyed working with and who I wanted to thank for making work interesting. I plan to write some for current colleagues next. That's somewhat more intimidating to me.

It's also made me pause to wonder when might be a good time to switch to my married name entirely. "Not now" seems to be the only conclusion I can come to.

Hmm, I wonder if it'll work if I just give it your LJ address... I'm not sure if it has to be the address you signed up with.

It's good for forcing me to keep the job description down to 1000 characters. =)

I'll add you to my list. I should add other people, but I'm not completely sure of the protocols either.

Not sure when I'll add you, but I will! :)
