So, you set up an account on LinkedIn because you heard it was “like Facebook but for professionals.”  Plus, somebody told you that recruiters are on LinkedIn.

Sounds like a good decision to me.  But….

Social media alone cannot sustain your networking.  You should also take advantage of large events, intimate coffee meetings, informational interviews, and just running into people!

Face-to-face interactions can strengthen your online connections, and social media can enhance your face time.  They go together – not alone!

So, really, I’m glad you are on LinkedIn.  Seriously, we should connect there!  But, that can’t be the totality of your efforts!

Let’s plan to chat at an upcoming nonprofit event, or connect over coffee.  Contact me to get started!
