LinkedIn Chimes in on iChime’s May 26th, 2020 meeting

Another sixty minutes planned, another thirty minutes over.  Hmm, really need to investigate this…

In this meeting we welcomed special guest Beth Granger, a trainer, consultant, and professional speaker on LinkedIn.  Beth described LinkedIn as an “always on networking event” and went on to answer some of the most frequently asked questions and demonstrate some cool tricks on maximizing our use of the platform.   Thank you so much Beth, your expertise was greatly appreciated!   Beth can be reached on her favorite platform at  You can also find her on the Facebook Group, Level Up with LinkedIn.

As has always been the case, since this is a networking and social gathering, people come and go, making it impossible to capture everyone in the room all at once.   There was a total of 32 people attending this meeting.

Some of the topics discussed at this meeting were:

Differences of free vs paid version of LinkedIn

How to quickly share your LinkedIn profile, even while not in front of your computer

An effective way to contact those who recently reviewed your profile

IT certification, pros, and cons (how it is viewed by peers and the IT community in general)

You are welcome to join!

Our next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, June 9th, 2020 at 2:00PM Eastern (New York) time.
