Developing professional networking strategies is a very important necessity to an individual desiring exposure in a given career. Over the next couple of weeks and continually throughout my career, I plan to use professional networking to increase my exposure in the field of kinesiology. Although I started my LinkedIn account several years ago, I didn't really start using it until now. I took an 8 year break (as an at-home-mom) to raise my four children, therefore, at the time, I didn't think that I had a need to keep it live. Right now, I believe that not using some of my time while I was at home to expand my professional network was a grave mistake. I plan to increase my network and promote my career interests more aggressively starting now.
