Now, I know that this is the time of year when many people, myself included, begin to make their New Year’s resolutions. When setting your objectives for 2012, think about what you want to achieve. Be it greater financial success, a slimmer waistline or an avoidance of all things Twilight, it’s important to set goals that are realistic. (The Twilight resolution might not be as realistic, though nonetheless commendable).
While you’re thinking about goals for 2012, also think about what you want to achieve with LinkedIn.

- Find a new job?
