In a recent community survey over 85% of respondents stated that one of their top three priorities was to collaborate with other like-minded professionals, to share experiences, ideas, and knowledge. Are you interested in defense, aerospace, space, satellites or NASA? If so, join me at LinkedIn to expand your network of contacts and connections.
I am Jim Jenkins, President of a technical training company, ATIcourses, and I am using LinkedIn to maintain my connections to others who work in NASA, Space, Satellites and Defense. LinkedIn is a 24/7 virtual networking environment with 85 million users, growing at well over 1 million new business people each month. Make a positive link to business people with years of experience.
LinkedIn is free to join and is the premiere professional networking site.
If you want to increase your connections in these areas, send me a request to add you to my network. I will accept all connection requests. Mention your technical interest area in your request. I currently have 1000+ focused connections and growing so you get a running start at connecting with a large group of my connections. My connections include 268 people directly in Space, NASA or Defense, and 223 LinkedIn Open Networkers (who are willing to link to you to expand the set of mutually beneficial connections). LinkedIn allows you to view the profiles of my connections and contact them if you have a common background or strong group overlap. You can also join the group ATI Courses to receive updates about Space and Satellite news and announcements of new courses.

Your professional network of trusted contacts gives you an advantage in your career, and is one of your most valuable assets. LinkedIn exists to help you make better use of your professional network and help the people you trust in return. When you join LinkedIn, you create a profile that summarizes your professional expertise and accomplishments. You can then form enduring connections by inviting trusted contacts to join LinkedIn and connect to you. Your network consists of your connections, your connections’ connections, and the people they know, linking you to a vast number of qualified professionals and experts. You can also join groups related to your interests and profession. These groups help you keep up-to-date in the latest news and hot topics.
