Happy Monday! Today we look at one more online networking tip. Enjoy and let me know if you have any questions on networking by contacting me.
In addition to in-person networking events, the web is the perfect place to meet professionals who are searching for your brand of talent. If you're nervous about networking, don't be. The internet is a great ice breaker and way for "shy networkers" to ease in slowly and get to know people over time. You can really make some strong professional bonds if you do it right.
Online Networking Tip for Young Career Opportunists – Use blogging to become even more immersed and connected in your field
Blogging continues to grow in popularity… big companies have jumped on board, but even so the blogosphere is still a level playing field for young career mavericks. If you like to write, consider starting a blog as a means of making a name for yourself. Identify yourself as someone interested in and knowledgeable about your field. Or, make comments on someone else’s blog.
Blogging is like passing out business cards… but instead, you're passing around ideas, inviting people to get to know you in a much more intellectually intimate way.
Blogging also helps you keep learning about your field after college, and staying abreast of recent trends and developments. It will put you in touch with the important people in your field – and you never know – you may just land a job as a result!
