Are you on LinkedIn?
Even if you are leery of being an active online participant, shy away from Facebook – would never use Twitter, and only read blogs (but never comment) – You should check out LinkedIn.
It’s the “Professional Social Networking” site – set up to help you connect with friends, co-workers, employers, recruiters, and any other group or company that you might be able to help contribute to.
When I joined, I made sure to join the Wheaton Alumni group on LinkedIn.
Today, I went a step further and contacted several individuals (who clearly made it known they wanted to connect to other Wheaton Alumni). It was very interesting seeing how diverse and spread out both in careers and geography.
Find me on LinkedIn – Although, I must warn you, unlike this blog, I tend to require LinkedIn connections to have some type of real world connection such as Wheaton or mutual friends.
