Integration with LinkedIn

To enhance the community engagement , it would be nice to create a path for career through this website. Stake Overflow for example has its own job portal and active participates in there would have better chance to land a job. While many of us participate here to learn more and help community , it is possible to motivate experts to join and participate our platform when they see it is a mean to improve their career. The key benefit of forum is learning and capacity building. For example, I am participating here because , I look into question and understand challenges for IT Professionals and while I look into the solution I learn a lot and when I come across similar problem in the real world, I will fix it right away and that is how I learn and gain experience. This is same for everyone who is actively participate in forums. Now, there should be a model to proof it and badge and number of contributions is one way to do it. In next step, this profile could be integrate into LinkedIn profile and show expertise for users in their profile as verified expertise. For example consider a user is very active in Microsoft Windows forum by number of answers and response, it is possible to add tag to his/her profile in LinkedIn like expertise in Microsoft Edge verified by Microsoft QnA. Then those who are looking for talents could find them easier in LinkedIn by verified expertise and it also motivate others to be active in this forum.
Since LinkedIn is part of Microsoft and doing so is not complex and just required implementation of some API and this could be an experience to move forward with other forums too.
