Who Changed Jobs in 2010?

Linked in sent me an email saying that an astounding 209 of my connections changed jobs in 2010, out of about 800 contacts in my network. That seems like a lot doesn’t it? I don’t know if it’s accurate, but if it is that’s a lot of job moving! LinkedIn did a nice job on the email, including the graphic below? Are you included?

i had the same reaction when i got a similar email. As i looked deeper, some of the folks added or modified their primary job. This may have been a simple title change, or an additional item from volunteering that showed up, thus causing the summary to be that they had changed jobs.

I did in fact change jobs, and mine was accurate. But others i investigated didnt change jobs, just info.

Still, it is an interesting bit of data to send out, and makes me want to use LinkedIn more.
