For a long time, I have been a huge advocate of using online, social media platforms to make connections with professionals in one’s given field of choice. Specifically, I think it’s a great tool for students and young professionals who haven’t found the best fitting job for them yet.
Conversely, LinkedIn, known as the professional social
network, is great for connecting because connections on the site are generally only made between people who actually do have a legitimate offline relationship. In other words, it’s more authentic.
I want to clarify this a bit further, though.
