Welcome to Linked In, your ticket to building great relationships with other businesses, staying connected with colleagues and networking!

Registration is easy. Just fill out the form with your name, e-mail address, create a password, country, zip code, your employment status, title, industry and company.

Next, you can customize what you’re looking to do and what your network can help you do. It’s divided into two sections:

To Find – This listing lets you select what your network can help you with. It includes: find a job, finding consulting or contracting positions, reconnecting and staying in touch with colleagues, selling products or services, investigating deals with companies, finding information on industries, products or companies and finding professionals interested in your product or venture.

To Be Found – This listing lets you select what you want to be contacted about. It includes: messages from friends and colleagues trying to get in touch with you, requests to provide a reference for a past or present co-worker, career opportunities, contract or consulting offers, inquiries about a position with your company, deal proposals for your company, relevant requests about your expertise and proposed discussions about new ventures or products.

I’m mostly using this Web site to reconnect with people, as I’m not really looking for new work or more work. So, I chose the options pertaining to that and unchecked the ones I didn’t need. When you’ve selected the options you prefer, click Save.

At this point, you’ll be taken to your account page, where the first thing you’ll want to do is confirm your e-mail address. The next step is to set up your contacts. You can do that by choosing the e-mail provider you use on the Web and it will take you directly to that page to log in. Once you’ve logged in, you’ll get a page explaining the security and why they need your permission. If you’re okay with sharing your address book with them, click “I Agree.” If you aren’t comfortable, click “I Do Not Agree.”

If you use MS Outlook or a program like it, you can import your contacts with the section below the Webmail. You’ll browse your computer for the file and then upload it.

You can also add contacts manually, which is my preferred method, because you’re in complete control of the information you’re giving out.

Once you have all of that set up or just after you’ve confirmed your e-mail address, you can start browsing employment opportunities under the Jobs tab. Or, you can ask and answer business questions in the Answers section.

I love the professional feel of this Web site and when you combine it with its ease of use and the fact that it’s free, it just doesn’t get any better. I hope you enjoy it as well!
