Join the Victor Gardens Professional Association Group on LinkedIn.

Ever had a question about home, family or work and wondered if one of your neighbors might know the answer?  Well, now there is a fast and easy way to ask.  Join the Victor Gardens Professional Association on LinkedIn and you can ask the group members all at once or search the members for experience in the industry of your question and contact them directly.

If you are not familiar with LinkedIn, it is a social networking website like Facebook or MySpace, except that it is geared strictly for Professional connections and networking.  Setting up a LinkedIn account is FREE and very easy.  You can include as much or as little information about yourself as you like.  It's a great tool to network with current and former colleagues as well as friends and family to keep up on their business activities.  It is also a great networking site for job postings and job searching.  You know what they say, "It's not what you know, it's who you know"

I thought it might be useful to create a group for our neighborhood to connect professionally.  We all come from a wide range of industries around the metro area I'm sure there is a wealth of experience and knowledge that could be shared with neighbors for the benefit of everyone.

Want to make an announcement about your business that you think your neighbors might be interested in?  Post it to the group.  Looking to make a job change? Post it to the group and see if anyone knows of an opportunity.  You can even receive daily or weekly updates by email automatically to keep up with group changes and postings.

See you online.
