1. If you have a LinkedIn account, do you use it to network professionally? If you do not have a LinkedIn account, how you do you network professionally?
LinkedIn was a new website that came on quick and that I was apprehensive about joining right away. I felt like this might be just another Facebook type website that was just a way to connect to friends from another platform. As I began to read more about it, I decided that making an account might be a good idea. I have not used my account to apply for any jobs, rather I have looked at what opportunities are available in my current field of expertise and have made industry contacts with leaders in those areas. I have also made connections with departmental leaders I work with the hopes that they might view my profile and see something that might interest them and give me a leg up if an opportunity presents itself down the road.
2. Do you think networking is important? Why or why not? Depending on your answer, provide at least one example. 
I believe that networking is very important these days in being able to set yourself apart from others in your field. I also know from experience that the better relationship that you have with someone, the more relaxed they feel around you and the more willing they will be to help you if you ask. I have made many connections at my current employer through networking on the job and it has allowed me to get things done that others may have had trouble getting done due to my relationship with them. I had a job that needed to get done and was time sensitive and through my connections through networking, I was able to schedule for the work to be completed and get support from others that would not have been possible without delays and more paperwork! Having a relationship with people and being able to network either through an app or at work in person is invaluable in getting things done and possibly moving you up the corporate ladder.

1.    If you have a LinkedIn account, do you use it to network professionally? If you do not have a LinkedIn account, how you do you network professionally?
I do have a LinkedIn account and the only purpose I use it for is professional growth. I think it is one of the best invented business tools out there. Any time I meet someone knew in the industry I plan to pursue, I further that connection in some way. It is a way to show appreciation and ask the important questions and form solid report for character reference and opportunity growth. Without those doors, it can be difficult to find good work and thrive without feeling the need to constantly fight the market or start over again. Facts and figures on a resume are one thing but a promising personality that shows consistency will put your name in bold light. 
2.    Do you think networking is important? Why or why not? Depending on your answer, provide at least one example. 
Networking is the core of building a successful career. That doesn’t mean that someone new to an industry can’t be successful quickly with few connections, however, this is rarely ever the case. The best way to climb the ladder and hold a position steadily is through a solid network of colleagues and industry similar idealists. The stronger your connective professionalism, the more opportunity is presented and the harder it is to fail given all the support that falls behind you. I myself would not have the position I am currently in without support from a supervisor who saw my potential and decided to help me succeed. In her eyes, my success was also her success because I got there through her means and her networking skills. A person to attest for your work ethics, goals, character, and personal strengths is everything in the job market. The likelihood of landing on top skyrockets. 
“Establishing relationships isn’t always easy, but exchanging information is a great way to learn something new. Take advantage of the opportunity because networking is worth millions, yet no price is ever requested. But we can pay a price for not networking.”
“Networking is a win-win for all involved.”
“It’s truly relationship building that can grow from professional to personal.”
