How To Genuinely Grow Your LinkedIn Network

Are more LinkedIn Network Connections genuinely better?

There are a lot of lists in the careers industry coming out promoting those who have grown their connections so fast in recent months.

Personally, I have decreased my connections by 6,000 the last 8 months and I’m still at 29,000 connections and 37,000 followers.

I don’t accept everyone requesting to connect on LinkedIn since I’m not right for everyone, even if they are attempting to connect with me.

I’m a believer in more is not better.

So in a sea of LinkedIn noise, how do you grow your LinkedIn network genuinely so as a job seeker you can get quality interviews, and as a career professional, you have appropriately targeted fans and followers?
