Do's & Dont's
1. Be smart
Change your security settings
Take off any 'unprofessional' content
Read articles & blogs - the help you need is a 'google' away!
2. Be Consistent
'Branding' is very important
Make effort to align all social networks so you give the same impression
Link networks as you create them
Always consider what your 'VALUE' is
3. Become an expert
Sharing new information
Sharing information from others
Asking pertinent questions
4. Meet & Connect with people!
This is what it's all about - go for it!
Use your profile to highlight your strengths.
Use a professional looking profile photo.
Show that you can have fun and you have a sense of humor. Employers often want well rounded employees.





Use the search feature to find people that you want in your network. Corporate directories are a place to start - once you have a name, try searching.
Spend time every day building on existing and new connections!
