Among other topics, I’ll share best practices for:
1. Self Marketing & Self Promotion
2. Online/Virtual Networking via: LinkedIn, Facebook, Plaxo, Twitter, User Groups, Blogs etc.
3. In-Person Networking; social events. job fairs and professional association functions. “Face Time”
What works for me? Getting “Face Time” with Employers & Hiring Managers!
This required stepping outside my comfort zone…
Joining, attending, and participating in Toastmasters meetings, professional groups, and association meetings are some of my networking best practices.
I joined Toastmasters 2 years ago and have been an active member ever since. I’ve held VP of Membership and Public Relations club officer roles for WaMuOne Toastmasters. Active involvement provided me “face-time” with people I’d otherwise not met.
Most Toastmasters Clubs are open to the public and guest attendance is free. You can attend clubs as a guest before joining. Toastmasters attracts multiple professionals from various industries.
In addition to in-person networking, I share jobs, resources, and news with Job Spot Seattle, Job Spot West Coast & WoVEN members on my social networking groups.
As with anything, networking is what you make it. What are your networking and/or self-marketing/promotion best practices?
As always, I look forward to your unique & valuable input on any and/or all areas!
