Linked In Groups

Posted by Amol Dalvi on June 24, 2007

For the last several months I had been trying to figure out how to get all the ex-ExactTarget employees to stay connected – somewhat like an ExactTarget alumni group. I had considered setting up a blog – a private blog with access to only the ex-ETers. But I wasn’t so sure about that. I didn’t want anyone posting derogotary comments or just souring the mood with negative comments.

 Well, I think I have found the perfect answer. The credit should really go to Troy. We were talking about Linked In a few weeks ago; he suggested setting up a Group on Linked In.

I am sure you are familiar with Linked In – it’s a popular business networking site. You can sign up for free, set up your profile (resume) and then set up connections with other Linked In users. There are lots of things beyond that and you can find all the info here on their About page. The real benefit is the connections you create. It’s a perfect way to stay in touch with business contacts. Even if you finish projects, change jobs or move cities.

Linked In now has Groups. I don’t know when they started it, but it is relatively new. With Groups, I as a Group Administrator can invite certain Linked In users to join the Group. Once they accept the invitation, the Group Association logo shows up on their profile. So, it is a way for others to know they once worked at ExactTarget. And another networking opportunity.

 Check it out, you can find more information about Linked Groups here. And I welcome setting up a connection with you on Linked In. Click here to see my profile.
