LinkedIn Funding in Today’s NYTimes

There is an interesting article in today’s New York Times about LinkedIn, which seems to be making enough money to get $53 million in funding. They seem to have some plans for expanding professional services to firms, rather than following the Facebook / MySpace entertainment and purely social networks.

Having been convinced recently to spend more time using LinkedIn, I cannot say I have been able to leverage it to achieve anything yet. Can anybody share a success they have had due to using LinkedIn, so I can get some ideas how to maximize it?
