Networking ideas surfaced in Liz
Ryan’s article, ‘Network your way
to a second career
.’ 

1.  let people know.
2.  update your LinkedIn.com profile
3.  use a targeted search feature [LinkedIn]
4.  indicate it is a two way street, win-win
venture
5.  seek out targeted groups, societies,
associations, communities in your target field(s)

“The great thing about a second [or third]
career is that when people refer you and
make introductions, they’re not doing so
because of your credibility in your new
profession.  You don’t have any of that. 
What you do have is personal credibility
and a track record of success in other
environments.  You have your integrity 
and your winning personality.  Those
assets, plus the network you bring to
your second career planning and the
network you bring along the way, will
take you far.”
