Virtual Networking

Networking is important in keeping up with professional contacts, making new contacts and keeping your skills sharp so that you are marketable.  When working traditionally, networking seems to come easier because you shake hands, exchange business cards, go to meetings and share coffee.  Networking virtually is becoming more common though and is just as powerful.  With LinkedIn, Facebook and so many other network sites out there, sometimes social networking with your past contacts and friends can lead to virtual work.  Don’t be afraid to let people know what you do and that you are looking for virtual work.  You never know where it might lead.  And don’t forget to keep those skills sharp.
