LinkedIn, the professional networking site that's 100 million members strong, recently released a study showing that men are savvier online professional networkers than women. LinkedIn defined savviness in terms of the number of connections men have and the ratio of male members on LinkedIn to female members. Even female dominated fields like the cosmetics industry for example, show that men are savvier networkers than women. There are more female professionals in the cosmetics industry than men and yet males have the largest networks and send more invitations than the women in that industry.
An underestimated but powerful way to tap into your passion is to engage a coach. Â Coaching is the practice of meeting with a credentialed, trained, or experienced professional who helps individuals identify their career interests, secure a new job, and strategize about career management and promotions.
Career coaches can even help people transition back into the workforce after children or other significant life changes. How do you use a coach? As the recipient of these services, you can and should ask career coaches for an explanation of their services, fees, and ethical guidelines before getting involved.
