How to Use LinkedIn – the Right Way

I am an organization development (OD) consultant who specializes in helping IT organizations.  Why IT organizations?  Because my undergrad degree is in Computer Science and I spent 15 years at IBM as a systems engineer – gathering requirements, implementing systems, designing networks, managing projects and doing the things IT people do.  I understand IT people because I am one.

I went back to school for a Masters in Organizational Psychology once I figured out that I knew a lot about computers, but practically nothing about people – and that people-skills and human behavior figured prominently in the success of my IT projects.

Ideal Job- Part 1- Finding

Companies run on people; people create processes to make work efficient and profitable.  Put yourself in a position to help your company make money (sell more product or service); or reduce cost (lower expense equals higher net profit).  All companies expect you to bring in 5x your salary – make sure you far exceed that to keep employed. 

Work only for a company that you believe in.  Their products, the people they choose to employ and their ethics must all align with your beliefs.  We will call this your IJ-ideal job.
