The LinkedIn Expert tells you "How to find your "Invitations" on LinkedIn"

So like me you are probably a little annoyed with LinkedIn's new setup.  As one Twitter follower said:  "LinkedIn is looking a little skinny".  What happened to my Inbox?  Where are the three "I's":  Introductions, Inmails and Invitations?

AS a LinkedIn Expert, you'd think they would have told me about this upcoming change.  Sigh.  That's the problem with being self-proclaimed.  Well, Introductions and Inmails are now to be found (where they always have been) in a searched person's profile (in/near the header area).  So you have to find the person you want to connect to and then simply hit the "inmail" (paid) or "introduction" link (off to the right) and LinkedIn will walk you through it.

But more importantly - where are my invitations, pending accepted or otherwise and can I still bulk accept?

Be at peace - you can still see just your invitations and you can still bulk accept.

You will go to "received" (on the left hand side in your Inbox - make sure your inbox is expanded), then in the new page, hit the little down arrow next to "received" and find Invitations.  Once that page open, you can still hit the box at top which will check all invitations and at the bottom you can bulk accept.
