When you work in Higher Education, it’s tempting to dismiss some of the conventional wisdom about social networking.

If you’ve heard (or said) any of the following, then listen to today's show.

  • In higher ed, it's always about what you know, not who you know.
  • I've already got tenure (or a great job). I don't need to worry about networking.
  • LinkedIn doesn't really do anything.
  • I don't need another place to post my CV. IT's on my website and I can e-mail it to anyone who wants it.
  • “I don’t know anyone who uses LinkedIn besides my students, and I don’t see what good connecting with Johnny from my [insert class name here] is going to do me any good.”

Higher Ed Career Coach Sean Cook is going to tell you why all of the above are nonsense, and clue you in to what LinkedIn is really good for.

We'll also cover some higher ed and employment  news, upcoming programs, new coaching packages, and site news.

If you have questions or comments on today's topic, or could use advice on a job search issue, call in to the show!
