Do you think having an account on Linkedin means it becomes a free job alert machine for you? Do you believe that a good Linkedin profile is a ticket to get a call from HR saying, “please, come and join us!”


Linkedin nowhere means a Job search tool. A Lot of leaders and professionals have said this earlier. They say it’s a social networking platform. But every network has a purpose. We become a part of any network with an intent in mind. We always want to gain something out of our network. Either it is knowledge, or job or reference, or RECOGNITION.

How many of us become a part of any network online or offline to get recognition? How many of us enjoy being the center of attraction?

Once you are a recognized profile on Linkedin, then the next purpose for your existence should be

Servant Leadership.

Now, what is this

Servant Leadership is when you work towards making others feel like Leaders. Make them recognized. Reply to their comments; Like their posts. Comment on their posts and make them feel important. Make them valuable. And you will see how even Network of Networks start appreciating your work.

Servant Leadership makes any leader stand out. The habit of developing more leaders and making the system independent of you makes you a real Leadership material.

Once you start doing this, the next most crucial aspect is, you should be


Anyone who drops you a message, make sure you revert. Even if you don’t have a solution to the problem, still respond. Your NO will also add value.

And if you follow this respectfully, you will realize how your career gets enhanced.  I assure you, there will not be even a single day when you will be dropping a message to someone and waiting for a revert.


Servant Leadership


These are the real purpose of Linkedin.

Don’t just limit yourself and consider LinkedIn a Job Search Engine Platform.
