  2. Kimberly A. Callahan says:

    Great job.

    Wanted to make one correction: the “Friends of LinkedIn” group does not require you to be an employee. You will need to submit a “success story” in order to join however.

    There is also one official group left of the list: LinkedIn Group Products Forum which is a great resource for group owners or those interested in group management.

    Lastly, I have authored a free LinkedIn guide for beginners which is available through both my LinkedIn profile as well as my Scribd account: http://www.scribd.com/kimberlyacallahan

    Comes under the heading “everything you always wanted to ask, but either were afraid or just didn’t know where to go to get the information”. This post is not only plentiful, but will probably take two or three readings to engulf all the VERY interesting information given here. I teach LinkedIn in the Orlando area as director of ProNet Career Resources and I hope that people in this area will take advantage of all that I’ve learned. Truck on….and thanks much. Howie
