Ah, Monday, the end of vacation. Well, for a workaholic like me, it’s just another day to tweak and get ready for class tomorrow (though I think some much needed cooking and baking time is in order tonight as a sort of final farewell to the pure unadulterated joy that is holiday eating). This is what updating the overhaul of the online version of Professional Communication and Presentation was like:
LinkedIn Boot Camp
As the introduction to this awesome infographic asserts, LinkedIn is the “dark horse of social media.” I myself have a LinkedIn account, but rarely update it, in fact, it’s not even complete. However, devouring this visually delicious infographic, along with a bit of prodding from my resolutions center (one of my resolutions this year is to apply for x number of jobs and to really market myself effectively as a teacher and designer), has made me recall just how often I emphasize to my students the importance of a strong professional persona. I have gotten pretty good at building physical muscle and keeping active, I think it’s time I start working on building my LinkedIn muscle. What do you think? Is LinkedIn truly as worth the effort as this infographic claims?
