Hey guys.
I've heard that the networking process in the US is different from that of Russia, so I want to understand how to do it properly and efficiently.
I was wondering if anyone could suggest me any good books or guides to networking, particularly using modern tools like Linkedin.

Plus I would love to read your advice on networking!

Hi. Congrats on your admits and thanks for posting the questions! You have multiple topics/questions here:
1. How to use LinkedIn best (this includes using it actively and also creating an appealing profile, which is using it passively)
2. How to Network in general

Linked In Has a few guides/help sections/areas that they publish and offer - here is one: https://university.linkedin.com/content ... nkedIn.pdf
here is a guide for dummies: https://www.hws.edu/academics/career/pd ... _guide.pdf
Here is a set of Podcasts: https://www.shopify.com/blog/networking-for-introverts which may be very interesting
LinkedIn for Dummies - I love the Dummies series since they are super easy to read https://smile.amazon.com/LinkedIn-Dummi ... 119251133/ and also consider optimizing your LinkedIn profile and leveraging it - there is a number of books/pieces about it.


You definitely should explore all you can find online and on Amazon. Also your BSchool's Career Services should be able to help with providing.

In Terms of networking in general, i don't have a really good recommendation. Anyone found any book or guide?

A LinkedIn recommendation is actually very valuable, so it’s a very nice thing to do for someone. The person you recommend is unlikely to forget the favor. And as long as it’s genuine, there’s nothing wrong with recommending someone, even if it’s just for their writing.
