I'm 1.5 years out of school, doing a teaching fellowship program, but looking to get into. I have been and plan to continue doing my networking through email.
I read something (I think it was ManagementConsulted) that said a Linkedin is vital for networking. Is this really true? I can find people on Linkedin using a Google search (site:Linkedin XYZ Company ABC School).
The fact that I have not had a prestigious job I think wouldn't bode well for having a Linkedin. Also, I'm not all that thrilled about the prospect of people from the past googling my name and seeing the unprestigiousness of my job...
Once I get a good job, I'll obviously create a Linkedin.
Is Linkedin THAT crucial to networking?
