If you can only belong to one online network, let it be LinkedIn. Not only does it allow you to showcase your experience and interests, it also serves as an effective marketing tool for your best product: yourself! Use it to research companies, get career advice, conduct targeted job searches, get recommendations, study what works for other institutions that can be used in yours, brainstorm with like-minded professionals on a variety of topics and, most importantly, to build a strong network of contacts who work in your field and location of choice.
