LinkedIn introduces original content

New York Times posted an article about LinkedIn’s new feature: original content. The new “Influencers” section features columns by industry leaders.

Examples of these influencers include:

  • Jack Welch (Founder of Jack Welch Management)
  • Arianna Huffington (President and Editor-in-Chief of Huffington Post)
  • Mark Cuban (President of Dallas Mavericks)
  • Meg Whitman (CEO of Hewlett-Packard)
  • Jim Kim (President of World Bank)

You can also personalize the “influencers” whom you follow.  Click here to go right to the influencers page.

Subjects range from topical to personal.

  • “Avoid These Three Hiring Mistakes,” by Jack Welch (click here),
  • “Things I Carry,” by Meg Whitman (click here)
  • “Learning Fast From Failure,” by Jim Kim (click here)

Because these posts range in subject matter, they provide a lot of great information for those who have a job and are searching for one.  There are a few posts about how these industry professionals use technology successfully and provide advice.

This new feature is definitely worth a browse.
