LinkedIn Tips #1: Don't be a Troll

This LinkedIn tip is important. Because everything we write, post, or comment on LinkedIn immediately becomes part of our profession identity—our brand—online. Prospective employers and recruiters are looking at that brand to determine whether a given candidate is a good fit for a new opportunity.

Given that (obvious) fact, it's a bit surprising—but LinkedIn, like every social network, does have its share of trolls—or folks who may look like trolls because of offhand, often arrogant or condescending comments.

 

But if someone looks like a troll? Odds are good that person isn't going to be the first person a good recruiter will contact for a fantastic new opportunity.
