I have been blogging on this site for almost 3 years now. An ongoing topic has been the usage of LinkedIn for financial executives and professionals.
I just started posting blogs on LinkedIn as well. I will be cross posting the beginnings of the blogs. I encourage you to read the blog in its entirety on LinkedIn.
Thank you for your continued support,
I appreciate LinkedIn. I have been a member for over 10 years and am the 23,531st person to have signed up.
I work in executive search. My personal specialty is CFO and Financial Executive Search. Working with my colleagues at Stanton Chase across the US, Canada and around the globe, I use LinkedIn as a networking tool to help me develop and maintain relationships with people that I want to keep in touch with.
In my weekly CFO Moves blog, I link through to the LinkedIn profiles of Chief Financial Officers that appear in my report on CFO hires, retires, promotions and unhires.
I have written about the value of LinkedIn in previous blog posts. In my recent book Guide to CFO Success: Leadership Strategies for Corporate Financial Professionals, published by Wiley & Sons, I surveyed my 87 CFO Advisors about social media use, and LinkedIn is, by far, the most popular and regularly used social media tool for senior financial executives.
LinkedIn is certainly not the only tool that I work with to advise, attract, assess and aid my clients in the acquisition of exceptional CFOs. However, I do spend a good amount of time looking at people’s LinkedIn profiles. This puts me in a good position to comment on reasons why your profile is being passed over by recruiters.
