I often run into people who say “I have a profile, but I don’t know what to do next”. The answer may only be a click away. Here are my top three suggestions to guide you to “next:”:

Starting this month, April Kelly who runs Customer Support will highlight the question that’s on top of mind for users. So, this week, we’ve a question that a few users had raised in a recent blog post. “Why do I receive the “You’re not the intended recipient” message?”. Here’s why:
On LinkedIn your primary email address serves as your account number. This email address will also be the one that all LinkedIn correspondence is sent to, such as invitation notifications. If you have more than one active email address it is important that you register all of them on one LinkedIn account to ensure that you receive all of your communications and establish all of your connections on one account. If a friend sends you an invitation at an email address that is not registered with your LinkedIn account, you may inadvertently create a new account with that email address.
