We are excited to announce the Ajaxian.com LinkedIn Community program. Every day we get numerous requests from companies to find candidates, from candidates looking for new opportunities, community members asking us who would be right person to talk about one thing or another, request for introductions, etc.
Meanwhile, we have never gotten around put in place a user community for Ajaxian. Thereâ€™s no registration, no monthly updates, just good old RSS and your comments on the site.
We are therefore suggesting that you participate with us in an experiment that we think weâ€™ll all benefit from â€“ the Ajaxian.com LinkedIn Community program.
Hereâ€™s how it works: you simply sign up in LinkedIn.com, a very popular social networking site, and â€œconnectâ€ to the user named â€œAjaxian.com Communityâ€ by sending an invitation to firstname.lastname@example.org. And we will of course accept all invitations from community members.
The benefit to you is that community members will be able to â€œsearch throughâ€ the Ajaxian.com network and find other members with like interests / jobs / candidates / etc, without compromising any personal information. They will also be able to publish job openings and rÃ©sumÃ©s visible to the Ajaxian community (again using LinkedIn features). And we will forward requests for introduction, job applications, etc. This is an additional way for us to connect better and get closer, besides posting comments on the site, which you can still do as usual. Ben and Dion will be manning the Ajaxian.com user. Also, since many of you are already on LinkedIn, weâ€™re hoping it is trivial to do this.
