Networking – PFP Assignments
1. Join an Online Social Network
2. Advice: Join a Business Social Network
Create a profile for yourself (a "digital business card") on a good business social network like LinkedIn or Xing. Look around there for someone you can friend who has advanced skills in one of your areas of professional interest. Send them a friend request, telling them why you want them in your network. If you keep coming back to these networks and doing searches for people who 1) live in your vicinity, and 2) have skills in areas you are interested, or 3) work at companies you are interested in, you can slowly but steadily grow your network of professional contacts, and by watching what they are doing, learn more about what kinds of things you can do in your industry as well.
