7/23/12 Another Linkedin task: Connections are very important on Linkedin because you need to narrow your scoop to people you can logically network with. One of the easiest ways to find old colleagues is to first list all the places you have worked in your profile. Than go to “Colleagues” tab and you will see those places listed. Click on “view all” for each place and locate the names of the people who presently have profiles on Linkedin. Click on the checked boxes in front of the names you want to send invitations. Then personalize your invitation to them. This way you can pick up quite a few old friends and target your network more efficiently.
