@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable LinkedIn is something I need to know more about and leverage #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:08
@Melissa_Venable Q1) Let’s start with the basics …do you currently have a LinkedIn account? Are you active in the system? #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:08

@AdjunctChat RT @Melissa_Venable: Q1) Let’s start with the basics …do you currently have a LinkedIn account? Are you active in the system? #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:09
@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable I have a LinkedIn account, though am not really active with it. Not sure what to do with it #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:10
@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable I have a LinkedIn account, though am not really active with it. Not sure what to do with it #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:10
@npmaven A1) Have a LinkedIn profile, fairly up to date. Challenged to find time to engage in groups. Limited “free” time. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:10
@deborahbrian RT @JeffreyKeefer: @thesiswhisperer @lmockford @holly_fraser @connectedtchr @deborahbrian LinkedIn for Adjuncts today’s #AdjunctChat http:… 5/27/14 16:10
@npmaven A1) A matter of making time, and focusing on the groups where I’m best able to contribute. A perpetual “to do.” #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:11
@Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer I think this is fairly common with LinkedIn – once you set up your profile, deciding best use is a challenge. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:11
@Melissa_Venable @npmaven Ah yes, our friend (foe?) time. As the features grow, there’s even more to explore. Groups can be helpful but …time. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:12
@JeffreyKeefer @npmaven I have not found the groups to be helpful thus far; a lot of spam and often low engagement #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:13
@Melissa_Venable How often do you log in? I found this interesting LinkedIn user Infographic today: http://t.co/xfdIoSr9j8 #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:13
@npmaven Really working to find it. 🙂 RT @Melissa_Venable @npmaven Ah yes, our friend (foe?) time….Groups can be helpful but …time #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:13
@KateMfD Morning #AdjunctChat, still dark here. Not a LinkedIn user so just listening in. 5/27/14 16:13
@npmaven @JeffreyKeefer Mixed experiences with groups. A few high-quality engagement opps w/mine. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:14
@Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer @npmaven There are SO many Groups out there. Can take trial and error to find the ones that are a good match. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:14
@Melissa_Venable @KateMfD Hi Kate 🙂 And good morning, thanks for listening in. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:14
@JeffreyKeefer @KateMfD Glad you can just listen . . . who knows what we may end up sharing! #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:14

@Melissa_Venable Q2) What are _your_ primary goals for LinkedIn use? Networking, professional development, job leads, …? #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:15
@npmaven RT @Melissa_Venable Q2) What are _your_ primary goals for LinkedIn use? Networking, professional development, job leads, …? #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:15
@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable @npmaven I have joined a lot of the groups, though have not been able to make much of them yet #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:16
@JeffreyKeefer RT @Melissa_Venable: Q2) What are _your_ primary goals for LinkedIn use? Networking, professional development, job leads, …? #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:16
@Melissa_Venable Goals can help guide where/how you spend your time on #LinkedIn, and may change over time. Job search now, networking later. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:16
@npmaven A2) Networking in some cases. Learning another. One of the largest (#corpgov) has been most useful & welcoming. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:17
@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable A2 Odd, but I have not thought much about my personal goals for using LinkedIn #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:17
@Melissa_Venable RT @npmaven A2) Networking in some cases. Learning another. One of the largest (#corpgov) has been most useful & welcoming. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:17
@npmaven A2) Also offering to share knowledge. That was well-received by members of a natl group to which I belong. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:18
@Melissa_Venable @npmaven Learning possibilities! Good for identifying leaders/influencers, current issues/trends, suggestions from peers. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:19
@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable A2 I think my goal for LinkedIn may be to network = sharing ideas with others with similar interests #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:19
@npmaven RT @Melissa_Venable Learning possibilities! Good for identifying leaders/influencers, current issues, suggestions from peers. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:19
@JeffreyKeefer @npmaven A2 Is that an active or busy group? #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:19
@Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer How did you get started with Linkedin? Not even sure how I decided it was something I should do. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:19
@npmaven @Melissa_Venable I learn a lot by simply absorbing what my corpgov friends share 🙂 #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:19
@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable Will you share how you have found this useful, too? #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:20
@Melissa_Venable RT @npmaven A2) Also offering to share knowledge. That was well-received by members of a natl group to which I belong. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:20
@npmaven @JeffreyKeefer Which one? The national org group, not especially. But they seemed to appreciate offer, chance to discuss. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:20
@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable I joined LinkedIn as it seemed to make a lot of sense, but it seems to do what FB or Twitter already do well #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:20
@Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer Goal setting? I am involved in multiple social platforms, but different purposes for participating. Helps focus. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:21
@npmaven LinkedIn not my top priority. FB & Twitter better for different audiences, more active. But I’m finding niches to explore. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:22
@Melissa_Venable RT @npmaven LinkedIn not top priority. FB & Twitter better for diff. audiences, more active. But I’m finding niches to explore. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:22
@MirandaMerklein Well, I have tried LinkedIn as an #adjunct, but it has yet to help me land living-wage work. I find it unclear how to benefit. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:23
@Melissa_Venable I started w/Linkedin as a digital resume. But have found interesting conversations along the way. Not as active as Twitter. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:23
@npmaven Other LI groups have been quite spammy – and clique-y. Engage where I’m welcome and can contribute. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:23
@JeffreyKeefer @MirandaMerklein Welcome to #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:23
@Melissa_Venable @MirandaMerklein Hi Miranda! So, job search is one of your main goals for Linkedin use? #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:24
@JeffreyKeefer @npmaven I find those niches to explore to be a challenge, as I feel I need to reproduce what I do everywhere #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:24
@npmaven @MirandaMerklein I think a big goal is finding where you can fit, contribute. A process, definitely. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:24
@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable I like that digital resume, though the groups I find active do not seem to be with substantial content #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:25
@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable I like that digital resume, though the groups I find active do not seem to be with substantial content #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:25
@npmaven @JeffreyKeefer It takes time, poking around. Challenged to find as much to devote to that on LinkedIn. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:25
@JeffreyKeefer @npmaven What processes do you use to identify useful groups? #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:25
@Melissa_Venable @npmaven Thanks for mentioning “contribution.” Relationship building definitely a two-way thing. Ask questions, but help too. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:25
@npmaven RT @Melissa_Venable @npmaven Thanks for mentioning “contribution.” Relationship building def two-way. Ask questions, help too. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:26
@npmaven @Melissa_Venable So important. Like community anywhere: can’t always taketaketake. Must be part of the convo. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:26
@Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer @npmaven Good point here about differentiation across social media accounts/platforms. Multiple options. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:26

@adjunctforlife Linkedin is a useless tool…it wasn’t helpful before the economy crashed and it sure isn’t going to be helpful now. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:27
@Melissa_Venable Q3) via @JeffreyKeefer What processes do you use to identify useful groups? #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:27
@npmaven @JeffreyKeefer Trial & error. I start w/groups where I’m a member elsewhere. Some have been invites, some exploring. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:27
@Melissa_Venable @adjunctforlife Hello there! Would like to hear more about your LinkedIn experience. There are limitations. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:28
@npmaven Struggling with that contribution piece, to be honest. The time issue. Or I’m stuck in ‘learner’ mode. So I ask questions. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:29
@MirandaMerklein @Melissa_Venable Yes, I’m definitely looking for something that provides an actual income. 6/7 courses per semester is hell. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:29
@Melissa_Venable Some of the most interesting groups (to me) are related to schools (alumni) and professional orgs. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:29
@JeffreyKeefer @adjunctforlife Welcome t #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:29
@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable @npmaven It is easy to get stretched too thin . . . #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:30
@JeffreyKeefer RT @npmaven: @Melissa_Venable So important. Like community anywhere: can’t always taketaketake. Must be part of the convo. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:30
@Melissa_Venable @MirandaMerklein Wow – agreed. There seem to be a lot of LinkedIn discussions related to adjunct and academic employment … #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:30
@MirandaMerklein @npmaven I think that’s what I don’t get. My history is journalism, publishing, and adjuncting. Not sure where to fit in alt-ac #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:30
@adjunctforlife Nothing will make the job search better if there are no jobs. You can learn acrobatics & walk on fire & it still won’t help #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:31
@Melissa_Venable @MirandaMerklein …but not sure what the stats are on how many lead to placement, contracts. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:31
@JeffreyKeefer @npmaven Can you talk more about what you have in mind? #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:31
@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable Do you find they have substantive conversations? If so, what makes them that way? #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:32
@npmaven @MirandaMerklein Have to test the waters. I engage w/peers in different interest areas. Connecting, learning, networking. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:32
@JeffreyKeefer @adjunctforlife How have you tried to leverage LinkedIn? #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:32
@MirandaMerklein @Melissa_Venable I think there are lots who don’t know where to go. Even entry level positions are competitive and specialized #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:32
@Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer Yes – good for sharing experiences- answering Qs about transition from school to work for example. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:33
@JHulehan LinkedIn is about networking. You have to make it work for you. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:33
@Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer Prof org Groups can be helpful to extend networking before and after a conference. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:33
@npmaven Yes. Different for each of us. RT @JHulehan LinkedIn is about networking. You have to make it work for you. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:34
@Melissa_Venable @adjunctforlife Well, I can’t argue that. Numbers of available positions does make a difference. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:34
@npmaven RT @Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer Prof org Groups can be helpful to extend networking before, after conference. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:34
@Melissa_Venable @JHulehan Hi Jennifer! Agreed. 🙂 It’s a tool that could be used in multiple ways. Each user can decide priorities,participate. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:35
@npmaven Yes, some of my pro groups use LinkedIn primarily for networking. They’re more successful than where LI is only 1 tool used. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:35
@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable @MirandaMerklein Perhaps this is something to look at; I have not searched for adjunct specs on LI #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:36
@npmaven LinkedIn not as full-featured as others. Groups w/presence elsewhere may find LI not their best forum for what they want to do. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:36
@JeffreyKeefer RT @JHulehan: LinkedIn is about networking. You have to make it work for you. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:36
@Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer @MirandaMerklein Any thoughts on adjunct positions and referrals? Networking can help make the connections. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:36
@JeffreyKeefer @JHulehan Welcome to #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:37
@JeffreyKeefer @JHulehan Have you found success using LinkedIn? #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:37
@JHulehan Some ways people use LinkedIn: expanding their network, relationship management, getting introduced to…, #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:37
@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable I thought your post for this week’s #AdjunctChat was quite useful http://t.co/z1E0CNnHTa 5/27/14 16:37
@Melissa_Venable @npmaven Well said. Value of LinkedIn (and other networks) varies by industry, community, etc. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:39
@JHulehan @JeffreyKeefer Absolutely! I’ve made great connections, and I’ve also gotten freelance work via LinkedIn. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:39
@Melissa_Venable RT @JHulehan @JeffreyKeefer Absolutely! I’ve made great connections, and I’ve also gotten freelance work via LinkedIn. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:39
@Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer Thanks, Jeffrey 🙂 I think LinkedIn is worth exploring, trying before making a decision to use/not use. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:40
@JHulehan Other ways to use LinkedIn: Promote your career, Group collaboration, Share presentations, Discussions, Build personal brand. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:40

@JHulehan LI summary statement is like your personal mission statement or the first few paragraphs of your best-written cover letter. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:41
@Melissa_Venable @JHulehan Yes! You can take an entrepreneurial approach -get the word out about your work, services. Build authority. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:41
@npmaven RT @Melissa_Venable @JHulehan Yes! take an entrepreneurial approach -get word out about your work, services. Build authority #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:42
@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable I have heard people be very successful with LI, though have not figured how to contribute / leverage with it #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:42
@adjunctforlife How 2 get a job: 1) Have 20 mediocre publications 2) Have the right connections 3) B wealthy, privileged & the right ethnicity #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:42
@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable I am very open to exploring it more #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:43
@JHulehan RT @JeffreyKeefer: @Melissa_Venable I thought your post for this week’s #AdjunctChat was quite useful http://t.co/z1E0CNnHTa 5/27/14 16:43
@Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer I think either extreme can be helpful from minimal: complete and updated profile (comes up in LI and Google)… #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:44
@Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer to maximum: participating daily in Group discussions, liking/sharing others’ updates, expanding connections. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:45
@JHulehan One key to leveraging LI: joining groups! And then participating in them! #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:45
@Melissa_Venable Q4) What are your recommendations – where should an adjunct new to LinkedIn get started? Best use of time and tools. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:46
@Melissa_Venable RT @JHulehan One key to leveraging LI: joining groups! And then participating in them! #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:48
@JHulehan A4) Join groups like Inside Higher Ed. Start discussions. Comment on others’ discussions. Send invitations to connect. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:49
@npmaven RT @JHulehan A4) Join groups like Inside Higher Ed. Start discussions. Comment on others’ discussions. Send invites to connect. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:50
@JHulehan A4) Start with a professional photo. Then an informative headline: Your headline is a short, memorable professional slogan. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:50
@Melissa_Venable @JHulehan Great #LinkedIn tips, Jennifer. And a good reminder to identify groups, influencers, etc. in #highered! #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:50
@fabianbanga hi #adjunctchat sorry i am too late, but I am here. 5/27/14 16:51
@Melissa_Venable @JHulehan Well played! We are now connected on LinkedIn 🙂 Thanks for reaching out. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:52
@Melissa_Venable @fabianbanga Hi! Glad you could make it. 🙂 Any suggestions for those new to LinkedIn? #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:52
@JHulehan Update your #LinkedIn status regularly. Posting updates helps you stay on network’s radar and build professional image. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:54
@Melissa_Venable LinkedIn, like Facebook and the others, changes. Stay current on new features, setting options, etc. http://t.co/40ELU2hN3M #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:55
@fabianbanga @Melissa_Venable I do not know, I am using LinkedIn for some years; more like a space for professional interaction and CV share #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:55
@JHulehan Posting in the National Assoc. of Developmental Education group on #LinkedIn helped me in building my brand. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:55
@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable @JHulehan Great idea; perhaps we should connect on LI! #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:56
@Melissa_Venable @JHulehan How frequently do you recommend updates? (I usually do this 1-2 per week, but …) #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:56
@Melissa_Venable MT @fabianbanga …I am using LinkedIn for some years; more like a space for professional interaction and CV share #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:56
@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable @JHulehan Odd, but I often do not think about asking people to connect; that is what I like about Twitter! #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:56
@fabianbanga @Melissa_Venable found some people when looking for instructors + connections in the area of #edtech / #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:56
@Melissa_Venable Yes! Send those invitations. 🙂 RT @JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable @JHulehan Great idea; perhaps we should connect on LI! #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:57
@JeffreyKeefer @fabianbanga @Melissa_Venable What strategies did you use? #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:58
@JHulehan @Melissa_Venable I think 1-2 per week is good. Sometimes I do more if I’m working on a project (i.e. post presentation I gave) #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:58
@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable @JHulehan What sorts of updates do you add? #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:58
@Melissa_Venable @fabianbanga Interesting – you found instructors to hire? #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:59
@JHulehan @JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable Asking for connections is good! As long as you send more than generic “want to add you add” msg #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:59
@JHulehan @JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable If I go to a conference–or hear something great at a conference, I might update with that. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 17:00
@Melissa_Venable @JHulehan @JeffreyKeefer Agreed – it’s a good way to get a conversation going. Stronger connection than “following” #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 17:00
@fabianbanga @Melissa_Venable wondering about the similarities with http://t.co/tcNrxNclzl #adjunctchat 5/27/14 17:00
@JHulehan @JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable Mention projects, professional books or articles, or events I’m attending. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 17:00
@Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer @JHulehan I share articles I’ve written, projects I’m working on. Mostly promotion. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 17:00
@JHulehan If you’re active in a group, you may become a “Top Contributor,” which really gets your name out there! #adjunctchat 5/27/14 17:01
@Melissa_Venable @fabianbanga I think there are more academic-centric communities than LinkedIn, may be better interaction for some. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 17:01
@Melissa_Venable Anyone active via Academia . edu? RT @fabianbanga @Melissa_Venable wondering about the similarities with http://t.co/cQc4yJKeJD #adjunctchat 5/27/14 17:02
@JeffreyKeefer Thanks to @Melissa_Venable for leading today’s #AdjunctChat on LinkedIn for Adjuncts. Please review and reply to any posts you missed! 5/27/14 17:02
@fabianbanga @JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable yes I did, we interviewed a candidate. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 17:02
@JeffreyKeefer I know I have a lot to still explore in LinkedIn, and feel I now have a few more colleagues there to interact with! #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 17:02
@JeffreyKeefer With so many of us here on #AdjunctChat on LinkedIn, perhaps we should explore having our own group discussions there! 5/27/14 17:02
