A 9.2% Unemployment Rate Means Big Things for LinkedIn

I’ve been unemployed for about six months, experiencing very satisfying short-term jobs with great clients who value the social media business proposition. It’s been a thrill.

Like a lot of people, I was dismayed to see the jobs report showing that we have only added 18,000 jobs last month. We have a 9.2% unemployment rate.

This apparently is good news for LinkedIn. Its share price has soared as people realize that networking, finding jobs, and gleaning as much inside information as possible from their social network is what will help them innovate and find a good job in this economy.

After the unemployment rate was announced, LinkedIn shares jumped 4%.
