LinkedIn Mentorship – Part 2

Check out my latest article: LinkedIn Mentorship - Part 2. My response to: Have you ever found someone on LinkedIn that became a mentor for you? How did that relationship develop?

If you have been “In” & around LinkedIn for a as long as I have you would know that back in 2017, LinkedIn started a Mentor service.

Ever wondered what happened to it?

I had to look it up, to be 100% sure, and today it’s called Career Advice. This is what it looks like!

Once you click on the blue “View their profile” button, you would be greeted with something like this:

For more details: https://blog.linkedin.com/2017/november/15/introducing-linkedin-career-advice-a-new-way-to-help-you-find-and-connect

FYI, their personal details were redacted for privacy reasons, as these are real people, I did reach out to them personally and offer to help them.

This is what an introduction message looks like:

If you want to be a “mentor” offering career advice, go to your personal LinkedIn Profile and make sure this option is visible and selected. Once you do you should be able to see a new section in your personal profile, as I do here, called “Career Advice“:

(If you don’t see it, go to your profile settings. The above image is what mine looks like. Notice the Green “ON” icon.)

Let’s travel back in time and take a look at what it looked like when it first launched on Mobile:

As you might have noticed, there is a limited time window where the two of you may chat.

Once you are both matched can communicating, you may then freely message each other, and either party may terminate the communication / chat at any point.

You don’t need one to become one. And hopefully along the way, you do get a mentor.

… Let’s end this two part Q&A with some quotes!

  • “Our chief want in life is somebody who will make us do what we can.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson
  • “My mentor said, ‘Let’s go do it,’ not ‘You go do it.’ How powerful when someone says, ‘Let’s!’” — Jim Rohn
  • “We’re here for a reason. I believe a bit of the reason is to throw little torches out to lead people through the dark.” — Whoopi Goldberg
  • “You know, you do need mentors, but in the end, you really just need to believe in yourself.” — Diana Ross
  • “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.” ― Benjamin Franklin
  • “Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction.” — John Crosby
  • “Children must be taught how to think, not what to think.” ― Margaret Mead
  • “My mistakes have been my greatest mentors.” – Steve Maraboli

My LinkedIN Connections Projection for the Next 400 Day Thru 2017-2018

By. Daniel Lim, Marketing Strategy Consultant & Digital Technology Architect

It’s the weekend and it’s actually relaxing and encouraging to explore the data and analytics, specifically regarding my LinkedIN Connections stats and Projection for 2017 – 2018.

While numbers are not everything, and I don’t want to purely focus on the details, others have made a great deal about social media engagement. And it’s about getting a big following of the right people. Remember: Quality vs Quantity.
The following are estimates by way of a simplified Projection for the next 400 Days, let’s look back and see how true these numbers are in, say … 400 days or so:

My 2017-2018 LinkedIN Connections Projections

If I were to continue adding 105 new connections every 5 days, including weekends!

** From Day 1 (Aug 7th, 2017) to Day 400, … but not including Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2018.

In 400 days, I should have at least 13,295 1st degree connections on Linkedin, … but God knows if we will reach that before or after Tuesday, Sept., 11th, 2018!

Note: Today is Aug. 13th, 2017 and I am already at 5,125 Connections!

FAQ:

Why 400? … Because it’s the number of days between Day 1 (Aug 7th, 2017) to Day 400 (Sept. 11th, 2018)

Why 105? … Because it’s the number of NEW Connections I’ve added between Day 1 (Aug 7th, 2017) to Day 5 (Aug 12th, 2017)
