I thought MLA should be on LinkedIn since we already have a Facebook account. So I made a space for us there! Joining will allow you to find and contact other MLA members on LinkedIn.
The goal of this group is to help members:
- Reach other members of MLA
- Accelerate careers through referrals from MLA Group members
- Know more than a name – view rich professional profiles from fellow MLA Group members
Here’s the link to join!
“LinkedIn is an online network of more than 20 million experienced professionals from around the world, representing 150 industries. When you join, you create a profile that summarizes your professional accomplishments.Your profile helps you find and be found by former colleagues, clients, and partners. You can add more connections by inviting trusted contacts to join LinkedIn and connect to you. Your network consists of your connections, your connections’ connections, and the people they know, linking you to thousands of qualified professionals.”
Just think of LinkedIn as a professional version of MySpace or Facebook. Many librarians and information professionals are already on LinkedIn. Hope to see you in the group!
