Networking tip: Getting ready for OTC

If you’re heading to OTC, now is the time to make sure your online presence is in good shape.

You’ll want to put your LinkedIn and any other social media addresses on your business cards, recommended Jim John, chief operating officer for the career network site Beyond.com in King of Prussia, Pa.

Then before you hit the showroom floor, do some updating on your LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook accounts to showcase your skills, experience and talent.

Make sure everything is up to date, he said.

And if you don’t have a professional-looking photo on your Twitter or LinkedIn account, now is the time to post one.
