These days, if you’re not linked in to an online network, you’re not really networking. Log on to these web sites to set up your profile and start connecting with new, inspiring people:
LinkedIn (www.linkedin.com), a free online networking tool, lets you link up with other people. Invite them into your circle, which then gives you access to their circles. The site can help you reach a decision-maker, look up a former colleague or make career-enhancing connections.
The web site Women for Hire (www.womenforhire.com) provides a free networking forum, among other things, for women professionals. As the site points out, women are naturally good at maintaining relationships in their personal lives, but not so great at it when it comes to their careers.
Recruiter/author/CEO Tory Johnson — the “workplace contributor” on ABC’s Good Morning America — and her team also can answer career-related questions with detailed advice within 24 hours. You’ll need premium-membership status ($38/year) on the site to post a question.
Ryze (www.ryze.com): This well-established online community includes a bevy of smaller, networked communities. Join a network or start your own.
