Don’t be a LinkedIn Loser

LinkedIn is increasing in popularity and use, especially with all the buzz about its IPO. But, don’t be a ‘LinkedIn Loser’. When you do invite someone to link with you, avoid the system-generated generic ‘I’d like to add you to my professional network … ‘ Comes off like junk mail sent to ‘Occupant’.

Instead, take the extra minute to craft a two-line personalized note indicating why you want to connect with them and what you hope to accomplish. When you accept invitations from others, reply with a short note thanking them and suggesting some ways you might help each other.
