LinkedIn "Official Ubuntu Members" Group
LinkedIn is a tool for helping build your career. (We collected a list, if you are looking for other social networks, probably with a different focus.)
As an Ubuntu member, you are entitled to be a part of our LinkedIn group. This group allows LinkedIn users to show that they are an official member of the Ubuntu community.

When you apply for a new job, recommendations are an important way to understand how a person has interacted with others in former projects or jobs.
If you worked together with somebody whose work you deeply admired, consider writing a recommendation on LinkedIn. This will definitely be appreciated.
