Promoting Yourself on Social-Networking Sites
How you can use sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and MySpace not just to stay in touch with friends, but to make business contacts and give yourself a little bit of a creative outlet.
Rob Pegoraro writes the Fast Forward column--a weekly look at computers, the Internet, consumer electronics, cell phones and other things that beep--and the Help File Q&A feature for The Washington Post's Business section.
Rob also writes a blog, Faster Forward, blog.washingtonpost.com/fasterforward, and hosts online chats for the Post's Washingtonpost.com Web site.
Pegoraro has been with the Post since 1993, in which time he has sorted mail and answered phones, written for many other sections (so far, his byline has shown up in National, Metro, Style, Sports, Health, Food, Home, Weekend, Real Estate, Sunday Arts, Sunday Source, Travel, Book World and the Magazine) and made it on the front page exactly once.
Plan to join us after the meeting for networking. Many of us carry our conversations to lunch at the nearby Brookings Institution.Attire is business casual,
recruiters are often present, so we ask all Monday Speaker attendees to
contribute to the professional standards and objectives of this
important networking meeting.
Doors open at 9:30 for networking and the program starts promptly at 10:00.
