LinkedIn – a Career-Sustainability Focused Social Network
The number of social networking websites is proliferating. Just do a Wikipedia search for social networking and you will find dozens, and they will probably continue to grow. The one website that at this writing (early 2011) that is the best, in our opinion, is LinkedIn (www.linkedin.com).
Creating a ‘profile’ for yourself is quite easy and quick, but maintaining it and learning how to use it for networking, for yourself and to help others, does take some time and commitment.
This PowerPoint presentation (Click on the LinkedIn logo) will help you get a running start on getting you up on LinkedIn. You will then be able to ‘take the ball and run with it’ to use the old football metaphor. (Sorry–it’s the week before the NFL Super Bowl as I write.) The password for the presentation is ‘lifesteward’.
