Have you joined the Career Building (Lend a Hand) group in Connected yet? With twenty-three members and counting, there are lots of things happening in this rapidly growing group which “encourages members to share their career development experiences, discuss strategies, and provide each other with tips and guidance.” It has also become a meeting place for the LN Lend a Hand initiative, which provides free marketing and career services to lawyers in transition.
With our Social Media Solutions theme this summer, we focused for the past two weeks on Using Online Professional Networking to Build Your Career. This week there have been three guest blog posts in the Career Building group.
- Leveraging Social Media to Support Your Job Search, by Vanessa DiMauro, CEO of Leader Networks
- How I am Using Social Media to Build My New Practice by Patrick Richards, Patent Attorney and Principal at Richards Patent Law
- How Not to Market Oneself on Social Media, by Paul Escobar, Corporate Counsel at Cumberland Gulf Group of Companies
Today we are doing a webinar at 12:00pm EST called “Online Professional Networking Tool Box for Lawyers,” with a second session planned for the same time tomorrow. Registration filled up very fast for both days, but we will be posting an on-demand playback and power point slides in the Career Building group.
The group is public, which means that any Connected member can join it. With so many great materials and group members already in there we hope you will join and find it a useful resource in your career building. Also, don’t forget to post your best job seeking tip in the Professional Development forums.
