I do love good news that comes from effective use of LinkedIn.
A colleague was seeking a new job. She has a wealth of experience and needed the right next career step for her specialty area.
She was made aware of an open position in a startup, researched the company officers on LinkedIn and found that the CEO was an old school friend.
An Inmail later, this reacquaintance led to an interview and a temporary, to grow to a probable full time, position.
How cool is that?
