Pulse, the platform’s publishing hub, has turned into a place where influential thought leaders share their thoughts on various industries, the latest news, best hiring practices, and so much much more.

As an avid reader of Pulse, and an employee at LinkedIn, I’ve identified the top 10 Influencers to follow, based on what you’re hoping to learn.
1. If You’re Interested in Introverts, Follow Susan Cain
Susan Cain is the author of the New York Times’ bestselling book Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking. She argues that introverts aren’t as clearly understood or highly valued as they should be. She started her career in corporate law and consulting, and later decided to become a writer. Cain focuses her articles on introversion and how anyone can unlock the value that introverts bring to the workplace.
