Getting Started on LinkedIn
On Monday, December 16, the RWJF Leadership Network and Human Capital Network (HCN) sub-group will launch on LinkedIn. The Network will provide a private place to share ideas, articles, and information with others who share your passion for health and healthcare. It offers unique opportunities to engage with RWJF staff, leadership, and grantees.
To join, you’ll need a LinkedIn profile. Here’s how to get started:
- Log in to http://www.linkedin.com/.
- Register by using your first and last name, providing an email address, and creating a password.
- Set up your profile. It’s much easier to make meaningful connections if you add context to your interactions: hover over “Profile” in the upper left corner, and select “Edit Profile” from the list of dropdown options. Let others know about your background and what you've been working on. Remember to upload a picture!
