Remember to occasionally download your connections. After you’ve gone to all the trouble of building a large professional network, you don’t want to risk losing everyone’s contact info—they may know about an excellent opportunity for you, or you may know of a career opportunity for them. Or, they may work at company you’re considering applying to and you’d like to contact them to learn more about their employer. To do this, click on Connections, then Settings (the gear icon), and on the next page, under Advanced Settings, you’ll see a link to export your LinkedIn connections as a .CSV file. “Now you have a file containing your contacts’ first and last names, email addresses, job titles, and companies,” says Kim. Once you land your next job interview, get the most out of it by asking these key questions.
