4 Easy Ways To Refresh Your Social Media On A Holiday
1. Join a LinkedIn Group
You probably have a LinkedIn profile, and some established connections. But have you checked in lately?
Yes, LinkedIn is now public, and talk of their IPO is still fresh. But you may not be aware that aside from being a great place to keep your resume updated, LinkedIn is also a terrific online portal to gain credibility as a professional in your field.
The average salary of professionals on LinkedIn is about $109,000 per year. So your chances of connecting and collaborating with people that could make a difference to your future are high. LinkedIn Groups are full of people already interacting!
Here’s the LinkedIn Groups Directory. There, you’ll see some popular suggested professional groups. But you can also do a search for other groups by profession, area of interest, and you can even create a group if you don’t find one you like!
Steps to take:
