If you're on LinkedIn, make sure to join these 3 groups

LinkedIn is an online professional social networking website. You can join for free (but they also offer paid premium services).

If you're on LinkedIn, make sure to join these 3 groups:
  1. Society of Physicians with Non-Clinical Careers (SPNCC)
  2. American College of Physician Executives (ACPE)
  3. Your college/medical school alumni group
I'd also encourage you to join groups that are focused around specific industries. For example, you'll find groups around:
  • Pharma/biotech/medical devices
  • Consulting
  • Health information technology
  • Medical writing/medical communications
  • Journalism
  • Venture capital/investment banking
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Job search/career transition
  • and many other interesting topics
If you're planning on finding a new job in 2011, it's critical to have a robust network and to connect with people through social media. LinkedIn is a powerful resource that can be leveraged to help you focus your job search this year.
