I like to read books because I realize that the author probably spent several months delving into the topic and at some point she knows more about her area of expertise than anybody else. Debra Faris does not fit this formula, because this author is constantly on the move in order to make new alliances and connections. She has however paused long enough however to write down the incredible secrets of her success.
Most people realize that surfing on LinkedIn can stir up your competitive, imitative tendencies. If you make the effort your profile will be presentable and interesting, because you will enhance it with creative ideas discovered by looking around. So having a decent profile means you can make a good impression, but you will need much more in order to derive the full benefits of LinkedIn.
LinkedIn for college students provides guidance for taking your LinkedIn social media presence to the next level. By seeking out people you don’t have that much in common with you can expand your connections and possibly meet someone who will help advance your career. The wisdom of Debra’s advice is that you cannot expect to always receive, you have to make yourself helpful, possibly indispensable in order to put yourself on a trajectory for success. Debra Faris includes this quote many times throughout her book “It’s not what you know, but who you know. Or better yet… who knows you!” Think about that as you read this great book.
