Your spouse may be doing it; the guy in the next cubicle probably is; even your high school English teacher has probably dabbled in it. It’s LinkedIn and it’s the “professional version MySpace,” as many people have called it.
According to the site, “LinkedIn is an online network of more than 20 million experienced professionals from around the world, representing 150 industries.” It’s been responsible for connecting people to new jobs as well as new storylines and sources.
It’s also a handy way to keep up with your fellow ASBPE peers.
If you have a LinkedIn profile, click here to access the ASBPE LinkedIn Group where you’ll have access to the profiles and networks of other ASBPE’ers. If you’ve not joined LinkedIn, pop on over to the website and see if you’re interested.
