    I just recently learned about LinkedIn. I know I'm VERY, VERY late but I just discovered it. Wanted to let everyone know how effective it has been in helping me.

    I've networked and actively worked ALL of the online job boards with almost no success.

    Once I was told about LinkedIn I built my profile and I now have multiple companies pursuing me!

    That's great news, Death.
    What type of work are you pursuing?

    I'm in sales; actually enjoy it! Have sold capital equipment (packaging machinery) for the last 25 years but feel that selling is a skill set that is not product specific. I've had a LOT of luck looking for a good position lately. Am very impressed by LinkedIn and want to let my fellow Gators know that they should foster/build a profile (whether they are looking for employment or not).

    I'm on LinkedIn as well.
    By the way, many of the highest paid positions in this country are in sales of one form or another.
    My father had great success all the way from selling china, to real estate, to eventually franchising.
