Although we have over 9,000 members here we only have 200+ members on our Linkedin Group. :thumbdown:

If you do a search for 'Food Safety" on LinkedIn groups we appear at the top of page 3. Our goal is to get to page #1. In order to get there we need to get 500+ members.

Please help us in our quest...every member counts. :thumbup:

Yeah! :clap: That's good news.

I guess we have more members here than at LinkedIn because maybe there are not too many members here with an account at LinkedIn.

For those interested in setting up a professional profile for networking, finding new jobs or searching for on the job related discussions, you can take a look at the LinkedIn website.

From Wikipedia:

FeaturesThe purpose of the site is to allow registered users to maintain a list of contact details of people they know and trust in business. The people in the list are called Connections. Users can invite anyone (whether a site user or not) to become a connection.

This list of connections can then be used in a number of ways:

  • A contact network is built up consisting of their direct connections, the connections of each of their connections (termed second-degree connections) and also the connections of second-degree connections (termed third-degree connections). This can be used to gain an introduction to someone a person wishes to know through a mutual, trusted contact.
  • It can then be used to find jobs, people and business opportunities recommended by someone in one's contact network.
  • Employers can list jobs and search for potential candidates.
  • Job seekers can review the profile of hiring managers and discover which of their existing contacts can introduce them.
  • Users can post their own photos and view photos of others to aid in identification.
  • Users can now follow different companies and can get notification about the new joining and offers available.
  • Users can save (i.e. bookmark) jobs which they would like to apply for.

Yes Hongyun and 7th place is up for grabs, but then it’s a long, long way to 6th spot. I must say members are signing up faster there than here. :rolleyes: It’s a bit of a dilemma – I just about believe that it’s better to have a presence than not.

If any members feel inclined to join our Linkedin group please don't sign up for any others or we'll go nowhere fast. :smile:
