To learn about blogging I have been cramming my brain full of everything I can read.  One fact keeps coming through loud and clear:  nothing about the professional /corporate world will ever be as it used to be.  Work hours, workplaces, work descriptions, and work tools are all different.  We can fight it, but we...more >>

Business Etiquette On LinkedIn

June 17, 2013 By admin | Write Comment

I recently read a blog post by Alison Green (@AskAManager) suggesting that some feel connecting to individuals on LinkedIn for the express purpose of getting to a hiring manager at a company is simply “bad form”.  It might indeed be inappropriate if you contacted a person asking "who is the hiring manager for this job posting?".  Why would...more >>
