Do you know how fast you were going?

With LinkedIn, you can precisely know how fast your career is going.

For example, you can use these indicators to have an idea of your career's progress so far:

  1. Number of first-degree connections
  2. Number of second-degree connections
  3. Number of endorsements
  4. Clarity of your career objective (if you have one, in your Profile)
  5. Consistency of employment
You can even compare yourself to your friends or co-workers. Maybe you can help them in some areas, maybe they can help you in other areas.

If you search for your company's name, and see your co-workers, then you can see how many connections and endorsements they have. (It never hurts to know what the competition is up to!)
