Acquaintances are those people to whom I have been introduced at some point, perhaps a meeting, seminar, volunteer function, or online event. We share something in common as the basis for starting our connection – membership in an association, attendance at the same university, a volunteer activity or the same soccer team for our kids. I view these connections as informational relationships which, over time, can move into another category, but many will never progress beyond this category.
a professional social media profile can be a complement to a well prepared resume. A growing number of companies look at prospective employees’ social media profiles to learn more about applicants. Crafting a professional social media profile allows you to leverage this fact to provide more information to interested employers in a manner that shows you understand today’s social media platforms and are comfortable with technology.
