While many have been holding on to jobs in 2009 that they may or may not really enjoy, many professionals are ready to make a move as Silicon Valley is starting to hire again. Many professionals use LinkedIn for re-connecting, keeping abreast of their contacts and getting their work done more effectively. However, the LinkedIn network has also become a central platform for hiring managers, recruiters and job seekers. Konstantin shares his best advice on using LinkedIn to advance your career.
Konstantin Guericke is an entrepreneur who was most recently CEO of jaxtr, a social communications start-up with over ten million registered users that was purchased by SabSe Technologies in June 2009. In addition to working on his next start-up, Konstantin continues to advise LinkedIn on the company's activities in the German market. Before jaxtr, Konstantin co-founded LinkedIn and as vice president of marketing led the company's marketing activities from launch to first six million members and profitability.
