Professional Networking Now and in the Future

“Where do you see yourself in the next year or two?” That is the question we have all heard at one time or another, whether that is through job interviews or chatting with friends or coworkers everyone wants to know where your going in life.

For me, I plan to continue building my professional profile primarily through LinkedIn as that is the network that other professionals tend to gravitate towards when they want to expand their professional network. It will allow me to branch out in my field of veterinary medicine to link with others that are also in the same profession. Now what about Facebook you ask? Well I believe I will tend to keep Facebook for my more personal network as I tend to post more about what is going on in my life and lets face it funny cat memes that are meant for just family and friends to see.

Since covid there has been less face to face get togethers but my goal for the next 6-12 months is that I want to get back into going to conferences, get togethers and meetings to have that face to face interaction and network that way. It is interesting to see other professionals in my industry and to learn from them. When it comes to my network at the clinic, I want to reach out to more of my coworkers and bond with them even more through events such as a clinic staff get together or some fun event that way we can bond over something fun and not bonding over the chaos of the clinic setting.
