If you haven’t logged in to LinkedIn yet, do so! (

LinkedIn is a professional network tool which gives you search and networking facilities, allowing you to extend your network beyond your contacts.

Members range from juniors to senior executives. Members can make recommendations to their contacts of other members. You’ll also find job postings and if you’re looking to recruit you’ll find potential candidates. Whats more, its handy for looking up potential candidates or referred contacts to see if you have mutual acquantancies!

For beginners, it is to search for current and former colleagues and contacts already linked up to LinkedIn. A very useful feature allows you to compare your Outlook address book against a list of existing members who have already registered, speeding up the process of inviting people to your business network.

Give LinkedIn a shot! Connect me up with an invite – search for me as ‘Simon Stapleton’
