I have been paying more attention to LinkedIn lately. I attended a local Meetup and decided to add the speaker on my LinkedIn account. This guy is in the Dallas area and he is a genius when it comes to internet marketing. 6 days after I added him to my network he did a post saying that he was looking for online marketing assistant. I sent him an email and didn't think much of it. 5 days later he responds to my e-mail and I got an interview the next day! I went to the interview and it went awesome and I got the job! I am so excited as I know I will learn so much from him, and I feel so lucky to be able to get this opportunity!
Keep in mind this is a huge step for me because I have been in retail for so long, and I feel excited to take on this new challenge, and be able to learn all about online marketing from a pro. My pay has gone up and I will actually be in an industry I enjoy!! And all because I took 5 minutes to add him on lined in and send a quick message. I am so excited!! Don't ignore LinkedIn for offline mentoring opportunities!!
