Here's a brief update as we look back at 2009 and get ready to dive into 2010:
- Our "Non-Clinical Healthcare Professionals" member site (http://members.nonclinicaljobs.com/) currently has 1,091 members. Have you joined this exclusive social network? This free network started in May 2008 and we've grown this quickly! What does that tell you about the power of social networking?
- Our Facebook fan page has 138 fans. Show your support for this site by becoming a fan. This fan page started in October 2009 as a social experiment and I've decided that the experiment was a success.
- Our LinkedIn group currently has 76 members. This group was started on December 9 2009, so it's only been a few weeks. Let's see how this group grows in 2010.
- On Twitter, I (@DrJosephKim) have 24,722 followers. I started seriously using Twitter in April 2009 and it's been an amazing social media experience to grow my follower count through my blogs and my social networks. Do you Twitter? Or are you asking, "what's Twitter?"
If you're not leveraging social media, it's time to jump on the wagon and see what it's all about. If you're planning on switching careers, then the power of social networking can't be emphasized enough.
