Are you Linkedin?
It's true you're "only a freshman" now, but it's not too early to start thinking about possible future internships and employers. Now, don't start freaking out yet. There's a simple and easy way to begin this process: build your own website. Again, do not freak out. You've already done this via Facebook, Twitter, or another social networking site of your choosing. Maybe it's time to step away from the world of tweets and notifications, and consider giving another social site a chance. Linkedin.com is a social networking website that helps you find connections based off your contacts found in your e-mail address book. All you have to do go to the website, fill out your name and e-mail address and voila! You're one step closer to finding a future employer. I talked to Drea Segura, a Public Relations major at OU, who has a Linkedin account of her own.
