Why you should avoid me on LinkedIn

I just received an interesting email from LinkedIn: apparently over 13 percent of my LinkedIn connections started a new job in the first half of 2011.

At that rate, I can expect about 25 percent of my connections to start a new job at some point in 2011.

That's a much higher rate that the typical labor turnover rate, which, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, is more like 3 percent per year.

So even if you don't want to avoid being one of my connections on LinkedIn, that might be something that employers would want to encourage you to do.
