Join LinkedIn and connect with other communicators!


LinkedIn is like the grown-up MySpace or Facebook, only very, very driven towards networking for professional adults and utilizing it as a career resource. Visit LinkedIn at http://linkedin.com and sign-up for a profile today. Here are ways it can be beneficial:
  • post your online resume and experiences for others to see your areas of expertise
  • use it as a way to connect with colleagues, friends, former college or high school classmates, potential business and industry partners, and experts who might be able to assist you or answer your questions
  • Ask questions and get answers and advice from experts
  • see job postings or post jobs
There are lots of ways to utilize this social networking tool. Another reason to get on LinkedIn now more than ever is because professional organizations that directly benefit communicators and marketers and those of us in career-tech are now on LinkedIn Groups. Who is on there?
  • National School Public Relations Association (NSPRA)
  • Association for Career-Technical Educators (ACTE)
  • Public Relations Society of America (PRSA)
  • And our very own group for CTE communicators in Ohio, the Ohio Career-Technical Education Communicators!
