Power of LinkedIn connections

Few weeks ago I got a interesting request from LinkedIn below: 

My schedule was beginning to fill up for November so I quickly responded and we met for a coffee at Tim Horton's in the Yonge and Dundas area.

He came well prepared for our meeting, with resume and dressed to impressed. We had great conversation and I offered him to connect with some of my contacts I had on LinkedIn that may be able to offer assistance.

Within that week he went through all my contact and I sent 5 forward communications for him. He had one contact call him back! That was awesome!
