We're wondering if anyone in Mountain View has been hired (by any company) specifically because of their LinkedIn profile. In other words, you wouldn't have gotten the job unless you had a LinkedIn, and you can demonstrate that.
Maybe you were introduced to somebody through the site that you wouldn't have met otherwise, or the employer saw that you were connected to someone on the site that they trusted...
If this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you. Please e-mail me at email@example.com
