Has anyone on here tried it? Is it worthwhile? They offer a free level of membership, but it seems that to really make it useful, you have to pony up some dollars. I'm not averse to that, if I get some value: I'd like to hear from some people who did.

I also use the free version. I simply use it to keep in contact with old friends and business contacts. I have also been contacted by someone on there looking for a job at my company and I was happy to talk to him and direct him in the right direction and put in a good word after speaking to him so it helped him!

I used it...found that it really has some quality stuff. My employer even found out that I'm using it and they are interested in seeing an outcome. I have upgraded to the next level beyond "free" and hoping the ROI is worthwhile. Many professionals use it and I find that it's a good site. Just my .02.

Anyone else not having luck with it?

I made a really good connect through it, and also, an old friend got in touch through it.

But, it keeps looping me back to the password screen! I've tried contacting their customer service, and got nothing but an automated reply.

Am I missing something?

I have no idea what LinkedIn is...however someone mentioned it's a website. If this is the case, it's likely that you are blocking cookies, or possibly javascript. More likely the cookies. So, they send your computer a cookie, that lets the website know you're logged in, but when the website doesn't find said cookie, it sends you to the login page. Check your security levels...

I use the free version and have enjoyed using it. My network keeps growing and I've even received a few emails from headhunters in my industry, as well as a few directly from companies that were interested inj speaking with me.

Linked in is a great tool! I began my job search recently and remembered that I have an amazing network at my fingertips. As we all know, it's not so much "what" you know but "who" you know. That is where Linked In really excels. We're linked with people we know, and they can put us in touch with people they know. I've only used the free version but as I begin to put out the word about my job search I will try the upgrade for sure.

Plus I've received emails from former college friends which has been an added bonus to reconnect! I believe the website is LinkedIn: Relationships Matter

A lot of my difficulties with it were gotten rid of by simply using Mozilla Firefox instead of IE.

It's a great site, I recommend it highly.
