Storage Professionals Group on LinkedIn


 

 

So the Storage Professionals Group started as storage, virtualization networking group on LinkedIn about a year and a half ago. Over this year, the group has grown phenomenally and has just surpassed 5000 members.

It did take about 12 months to grow to 2000 members but the last 3000 members came in over the past 4 months. As the economic challenges continue, people rely on social / professional networking sites to promote their public profiles and get involved in social networking groups to hunt for new opportunities.

Storage Professionals is a group of 5000+ members with strong storage, virtualization backgrounds. As we all know these days, part of every person’s resume is a link to their public profile (LinkedIn), a blog address and possibly addresses to publically connect to them.  

The Storage Professionals Group is growing at an average of 30-40 members a day.

These social media groups open up opportunities to network with all the group members, without having a connection to them. In short, if you are looking to connect / email to any of the members, it’s an open door to do so.

Please read the group details below.
