Linkedin DIY Drones Group

What's LinkedIn you may be asking yourself?!

LinkedIn is a social networking website for students, and people in every occupation.  You can connect and social network with all sorts of people that are professionals in your industry or field of study.

What kind of members on DiyDrones.com could benefit from connecting with fellow Diy Drones Members?!

Everyone!

  • Student's aged 16-50+ can benefit from it because they can connect with people and find jobs, internships, and create relationships with people who will hire you or connect you with people who will
  • Professionals in every industry (Robotics, Engineering, Biology, Agriculture, etc) can benefit from all the connections with possible interns and potential employees

Connect with me on LinkedIn and I will go through your Diy Drones Profile and view the content you have submitted (Discussions, Blogs, responses) and endorse all the skills that I think you possess.  I'm very passionate about how much LinkedIn can help all my fellow Diy Drones members.  So I'm willing to volunteer a lot of my free time to help Diy Drones members set up professional looking LinkedIn profiles and help you connect with the type of people that you need to become successful in whatever industry that you're in.  You can connect with me on LinkedIn by Clicking on the www.LinkedIn.com/in/diydrones link at the top of the blog or the LinkedIn Button at the top.

@Josh,

Your link to linkedin goes to just your profile. Are you trying to start a DIYD Group on LinkedIn? If so, you need to create the group. I am sure that DIYD members will be glad to join.

Very unprofessional picture. Maybe ok for a dating site...

IMHO, i think this is another example of how linkedIn endorsements are useless. The recommendations are much better, as it requires effort for people to describe why working with somebody was great experience. Endorsements have no barrier to give. LinkedIn actively pesters people to endorse. People just click away.

I was discussing this just last night with a friend, and hiring manager at a very large local games company, and he said the same. Which means, people hiring don't see value. We agreed that we think linkedIn will potentially drop the feature.

I'll definitely sign-up for the DIYDrones group, though, thats great use on linkedIn

We have local group for British Columbia here http://www.linkedin.com/groups/BC-UAV-Professionals-4812729?trk=myg...

I think this chap has some good ideas for LinkedIn http://readwrite.com/2013/07/08/linkedin-endorsements-lots-of-noise... More LinkedIn fire here http://readwrite.com/2013/07/08/linkedin-endorsements-lots-of-noise...

It would be great to see more folks on the official DIYD group contributing more. I certainly see many folks clicking through from LinkedIn to sUAS News. 

Chris is one of their influencers

@Gary,

I have started a discussion on the LinkedIn DIY Drones Group that promotes the possibility of starting a winter version of the Sparkfun AVC here in Florida when the rest of the country is snowed in.:-)
