Recomendable: Career Advice From LinkedIn’s Billionaire Founder – Business Insider

12 03 2013

Reid Hoffman started his professional life with the intention of becoming an academic.

But then he realized: “in order to be a professional scholar, you have to dedicate a vast majority of your career to writing esoteric books that only 50 people will understand.”

So instead, he got into the technology industry with a job at Apple, where he helped build eWorld, Apple’s version of America Online.

Next, he started a company called SocialNet. It failed.

A friend of Hoffman’s, Peter Thiel, recruited him to join a startup, PayPal. It sold to eBay in 2002.

Then Hoffman went on a long trip to Australia. There, he decided to create an Internet company.

It’s still around.

It’s LinkedIn.

Today, it’s worth $19 billion – and Hoffman is its biggest shareholder.

It’s been a pretty impressive career. Want to know how Hoffman did it? Want to know the guiding principles he followed?

You’re in luck.
