Social media is the fad of the 21st century and business professionals have found a way use it to their advantage: LinkedIn . This social media site offers networking and career building opportunities, allowing students to build their profiles early on and share work experience, while even connecting with possible future employers!
Those who are a part of FBLA have the opportunity to join the FBLA-PBL and Georgia FBLA groups on LinkedIn to network with members from all across the state and country. In addition, they can build bridges with alumni and business professionals to receive career advise and mentoring opportunities.
Troy D. White, the current FBLA-PBL National Marketing Director, even published a book called Use LinkedIn to Get Into Your Dream College. This is a step by step instruction manual that can be found online for free to help students in building a better and brighter future!
