Free Bookmarklet: A LinkedIn Hack Simplified by @JanBernhart

Sourcers and recruiters are notorious for finding hacks to make life easier. One of the most popular hacks circulating right now allows a LinkedIn user to view the full profile of other users they are not connected to. This is done by taking a users ID number, then manipulating the URL. Inspired by the recent #SourceCon Live Hangout with Glenn Gutmacher, Jan Bernhart took this hack and simplified it even more by creating a bookmarklet to automate the process.

Watch this short video for a demo.
