5 Reasons to Love LinkedIn:

1. The collective dream:

LinkedIn's vision to create the world's first economic graph, as Jeff Weiner describes, "we want to digitally map the global economy, identifying the connections between people, jobs, skills, companies, and professional knowledge -- and spot in real-time the trends pointing to economic opportunities. It's a big vision, but we believe we're in a unique position to make it happen."

2. Enabling professionals to be more productive and successful:

Productivity plays a major role in success, and on the topic of productivity: How do you consume news & industry insights on a daily basis? How do you research who you are meeting with? How do you prospect? How do you navigate your career trajectory? Through the lens of networking, staying informed, and being strategic with your time, all roads lead to LinkedIn. (Bonus: do you utilize the full suite of mobile apps?)

3. Creating a relevant & meaningful experience:

Like Netflix recommends movies you might like, LinkedIn personalizes everything from news to jobs and from people you may know to insights you might need. Ultimately, you get out of LinkedIn what you put in. It starts with building your profile, and providing data on who you are, what you do, and most importantly: who you want to become. By creating your professional identity, connecting, and following the right companies, news channels, and influencers, you will change your experience significantly. I recommend spending time exploring & creating a relevant experience for yourself. (Bonus: do you get too many LinkedIn emails?)

4. Personal transformation through identity & insights:

Whether you are looking to network or looking for your next opportunity, LinkedIn can help. But that's only the tip of the iceberg. We can also help you find college outcomes data and alumni to engage with, insights from industry leaders through our Influencer Platform, targeted news from Pulse, and we empower you, the member, to transform your career.

5. The company's roadmap:

While LinkedIn is about to turn 11 years old, older than most are aware, we are still very young in terms of realizing our potential. The innovation and the disruption we are bringing to the ways in which companies hire, market, and sell is unparalleled. The data we bring to decision making for everything from talent acquisition to which college to attend and from marketing to social selling is still both futuristic to some and available to those who embrace innovation. As our mobile offerings improve, as talent acquisition matures, and as selling shifts social, LinkedIn is positioned to not only help our members achieve their dreams, but to connect the world's professionals to transform the global economy.

How about you, how LinkedIn savvy are you? In the comments, share other stories & tips for utilizing the world's largest professional network.

Your GPA Could Impact Your Income

It's no secret that if you goof off in college and end up with a low grade point average, you will probably kill your chances of going to an elite graduate school. But did you know that a lower GPA would likely cost you in salary and bonus as well?

That certainly seems to be the case, according to a new study of compensation in investment banking by WallStreetOasis.com. The study is based on the responses of 3,401 employees of both large and small investment banking firms who voluntarily reported their pay to the website.

A third-year analyst made average total compensation of $65,000, if the person's GPA was 2.8 or less, compared to $77,700 for a GPA of 2.9 to 3.1. The 'A' student, with a GPA of 3.8 to 4.0, pulled down average total comp of $115,700--a more than $50,000 a year premium over the 2.8 or lower graduate.

The grades you earn during your undergraduate years also strongly correlate with associates--the typical entry level jobs available to MBA graduates. A first-year associate in investment banking, the study showed, made average total comp of $79,700 if his or her GPA was 2.9 to 3.1, or $99,700 for a GPA of 3.2 to 3.4. Just a slightly higher GPA, at 3.5 to 3.7, would increase total pay to $137,400.

"GPA is a pretty good indication of the bonus that the analyst will receive," explains Patrick Curtis, founder and editor of WallStreetOasis. "That seems to be true up until you get to about the high, high end and the low, low end. i doubt it’s because they know the GPA. No one is thinking of your GPA when they are deciding your bonus number. It’s more about how hard you worked or whether you are a team player. Some of it has to do with selection bias. Higher GPAs tend to go to the higher paying firms. Lower GPAs may be at regional banks that pay less.

This one day conference is a not for profit event that's dedicated to helping Atlanta practitioners learn from other practitioners through questioning and dialog. To be successful at $89 per person, it needs the local community to gather and share experiences, stories and challenges. 

This year's theme is Scaling Agility. 

Helping teams succeed using agile methods within teams (projects), across teams (programs) and outside teams (portfolios).

Sessions will speak to various topics like product design, leadership, technology, development practices, and/or course, how to really scale agility without simply introducing more process, and dogma or hype.

Instead of a keynote, we are going to start this conference with a conversation. Long time Agilists, Mike Cottmeyer, David Hussman, David Laribee and Mary Poppendieck, will field audience questions and share their experiences, including the good the bad and the ugly. This will be followed by a series of morning speakers and an afternoon of open space discussions.

Gartner Identifies the Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2014
Analysts Examine Top Industry Trends at Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2013 October 6-10 in Orlando

Gartner, Inc. today highlighted the top ten technologies and trends that will be strategic for most organizations in 2014.  Analysts presented their findings during Gartner Symposium/ITxpo, being held here through October 10.
Gartner defines a strategic technology as one with the potential for significant impact on the enterprise in the next three years. Factors that denote significant impact include a high potential for disruption to IT or the business, the need for a major dollar investment, or the risk of being late to adopt.
A strategic technology may be an existing technology that has matured and/or become suitable for a wider range of uses. It may also be an emerging technology that offers an opportunity for strategic business advantage for early adopters or with potential for significant market disruption in the next five years. These technologies impact the organization's long-term plans, programs and initiatives.

Facebook is Throttling Marketers for Their Own Good

The Implications of 1% Organic Reach Limits on Facebook

The words “1%” and “Facebook” tend to come together with scary consequences for Marketers. Last year, we learned only 1% of Facebook page “fans” engage with the brands they have liked. This year, we’re learning Facebook is driving toward a day when only 1% of brand’s posts organically reach their audiences. For Facebook and for companies that optimize ads the way we do, this is a potential mixed blessing, as brands will need to pay-to-play if they want to stay relevant on the platform. Facebook’s inclination toward profitability will force marketers to jump ship or get smarter about ad optimization—and even more savvy with the content they post.

Creative posted to Facebook will need better messaging and better targeting

EdgeRank used to allow more content through to audiences, which meant each message could find an audience to share it. The narrower the audience gets, the more personalized each message will need to be. This provides an incentive to target customer segments with creative content specific to them in order to induce sharing. For brands not looking to target as closely, the content published will need to be relevant and resonant with any 1% selection of their audience.

Renewed emphasis on creating stories for customers to post

Red Bull is brilliant for many things, and few of them are in the can. When Red Bull sponsored Felix Baumgardner’s leap from space, they created a piece of content fans could seek out and share to various networks, including Facebook. Regardless of whether Facebook throttles Red Bull’s organic reach, that video and rumors around it pervade the social sphere because users share it…with no additional cash investment. If your brand cannot fund a space leap, determining what you can actually do to encourage your audience to talk about you should be your focus. Smaller brands should consider inducing customers and staff to share stories on their behalf, or at least to share stories directly from the brand’s timeline.

Platform agnosticism

With the proliferation of so many non-Facebook avenues for engaging with customers, renewing focus on a breadth of networks and communities to express brand language and personality is critical. While many marketers operate on Twitter, engaging with brands and bots along with their customers, other networks like Pinterest, Polyvore, Tumblr, Medium, LinkedIn, YouTube, Vimeo, and Google+ provide alternate contact points for marketers to meet their customers.

Ultimately, Facebook is forcing marketers to better serve their customers with better campaigns and more creative ways to spread messaging across every customer touch point. We all like an easy win, but this might be good for our profession in the long run.
