Can I download my LinkedIn 1st connections?  Why yes, you can!

Downloading your 1st connections

Did you know downloading anything from your LinkedIn profile is almost impossible?  However, you can download your 1st connections.

Please follow these steps:

  • Go to your LinkedIn home page
  • Click on the small picture of yourself in the upper right-hand corner
  • Select “Settings and Privacy”
  • Click “Get a copy of your data”
  • The rest is self-explanatory

By accessing your connections via spreadsheet, you can now throw a filter on the various fields and start to see emerging trends. Who doesn’t love a good spreadsheet?

Simply looking at your connections online is valuable but will be more difficult to analyze.

My story:

After spending 15 years on Wall Street making nine figures, I lost my job at Credit Suisse as a banker. There were no jobs in 2008, and I fell into a big depression. Feeling scared, angry, and disconnected from myself and the world, I was a mess.

However, my brother, the person who builds relationships better than anyone I know, took me under his wing. He showed me all the basic and advanced ways to connect with people in writing, speech, and body language. With his help, I pivoted into recruiting, the solar industry, and 5+ years ago to my dream, job search coaching.

At the end of the day, please learn from me.  I have fired and been fired. I have laid off, been laid off, married, divorced, married again, divorced. Landing back on my feet, I am now with a beautiful woman in Oklahoma City. I have beautiful children also.
