Why do I need to be on LinkedIn?

Q:  Why do I need to be on LinkedIn?

A:  Prospective employers will look for you there.  People looking for a lawyer in your locale search the site.  It’s a ready way to expand your network for referrals, speaking engagements, and job opportunities.  You can introduce yourself to thought leaders in your field.  You can see who those you admire connect with, groups they join, and articles they post.  You can search for people who work in your practice area, are fellow alums, and have had the career path you want. 

Convinced?  Good.
