Don’t Be Afraid to Be “Social” 

“As I mentioned earlier, most jobs in my industry are online, so the best thing is to connect with someone via social media or LinkedIn. It’s called ‘social’ media for a reason because it was created for us to be social. Media before networking sites were all about what could be pushed out to us without us having a way to respond. The beauty in social media is that we can connect with one another in real-time versus waiting for a letter in the mail or even an email. Using these platforms in the way they were supposed to be used is vital to your network. Comment on blog posts. Engage with their content online. Then, of course, go to workshops, networking events, etc. to meet people in person.”
