Is Linkedin helping you to find the next job or is it still a wishful thinking ?

March 4, 2011

I am asking myself this question after I have run some surveys. When I asked for the key purpose for being in Linkedin 38% wanted to attract a new job where 37% are there for networking. Link to survey.

When I asked the question on where you found your current job – dating back not more than three years: Link to survey.

53% found it through job search online (company website, job sites)

23% through professional networking (professional groups, colleagues)

and the rest through other classical channels.

What surprised me the most that none really none had attracted a new job via Linkedin.

What could be the reason ? Any success stories on your side that you can share ?

I read so much about strategies to find a new job via Linkedin and great advice but it seems the reality still looks different.

Free Teaching Tools Web2.0

February 11, 2008

One of the best ways to learn is to teach it to others. Therefore I will be listing some free tools to use to teach virtually. This list is not complete. I will do some maintainance over the next couple of weeks as I am going to test the tools before listing them here.
It is up to you what tools you finally use to teach to others. I like to make teaching a rather engaging and action oriented process. There are a number of tools to support this:

1) Scheduling tools:
To schedule a synchronous activity such as a Webinar I like to use Doodle. This tool allows you to poll your audiences’ prefered date for a synchronous event.

2) Sensibilisation: (Pre Event or Post Event Activities)
I like to sensibilize my audience especially when I have some key slides for them.
Just the other day I polled one of my audiences after delivering an online presentation via Netmeeting with a free tool called: Kwiksurvey. During my presentation I had introduced a list of factors having an influence on successful leadership career development. In the poll I let the audience rate each factor’s influence. After a week I shared the results with them.
Another way to use the tool is to poll your audience before delivering a presentation or a training. I usually have one main question for each slide I am going to use in this kind of events. By letting the audience rate the importance of each question before I get a good glimpse on which will be the key questions and therefore the key slides for them.
