II. BEFORE you do the above, you're going to answer these questions for me by conducting research on the Web that address what is Linked In and the power of networking.
Do NOT just cut-and-paste answers from the Web (#3, #4). I want your answer in YOUR OWN WORDS. Answers should be in complete sentences.
III. What's a "professional" profile look like? (SEE FILE TO THE RIGHT - "LinkedIn Profile Checklist")
The above is your rubric. Points will be awarded for each of the above and similarly deducted.
