A professional online profile and networking are key to managing any successful career. At a recent speaking engagement for an executive networking group, HAPPEN, I advised the audience that failure to establish a profile on Linkedin is simply career suicide! I wondered if my comments might be a little harsh but on second thought realized they were absolutely necessary if I was going to provide the advice they needed to successfully manage their careers.
Here are the facts:
Linkedin is the #1 professional networking site
More jobs are secured through networking than all other job search tools combined
Over 80% of HR professionals and recruiters are seeking potential candidates online
