Have You Used LinkedIn’s New Search Your Connections Connections?

Yes, thats right, you are now able to search using advanced search for your connections

connections. If their contacts are viewable you can use advanced search

to find a contact.

If you are in sales this is great!! I repeat if you are in sales this is going to be essential.

If you are a recruiter this is terrific! If you are Sourcer it is fabulous. If you are in job

search it is the ultimate. Now you wont have to contact your connections and bother

them for a contact you can just go and search their connections. There is one caveat they have to make their connections viewable to

Here is how it works. You start on your profile page. Go to the search button at the

top and search for your name. Do not click on your name, hover over the blue link

pop up will appear “View all their connections”. Click on the number and all of their

connection will show up.

company you want to do business with.
