Utilizing Online Social Networking Sites BSHS352 Technology in Human Services Linkedln is the world s largest professional network Linkedln can connect you to trusted contacts and help you exchange information with a broader network of professionals After researching LinkedIn I found that it gives you the keys to controlling your online Identity Tools like Answers and Groups let you locate and interact with experts through trusted introductions LinkedIn Search lets you explore the broader network by name title company location and other keywords that will help you find the knowledge you re looking for As stated on the LinkedIn website today s professional world people change jobs and locations constantly By connecting on LinkedIn your address book is always up to date A you and your contacts update your profiles it will keep you current with the latest jobs projects and contact information You ll stay in closer contact with great tools to communicate and collaborate LinkedIn The three professional business groups that I chose that would be within my chosen field are located within the company I work for One is called Ohio Infant Mortality Reduction Initiative OIMRI another is called Mammogram Connection and the last one is called Moms First Each of these groups are part of The Northeast Ohio Neighborhood Health Services NEON through grant programs but they are entities within themselves like the Women Infant and Children WIC program they are just housed in our company The OIMRI Group concentrates on women in a targeted area of Cleveland Ohio Of the six sites of NEON they are located in three of them on Hough Avenue our Southeast Health Center and the East Cleveland Center The mammogram connection is housed in the Hough center and Moms First is housed in the Hough Southeast and Collinwood sites Of the three on OIMRI has monthly meetings to my knowledge and while neither provides continuing education opportunities they do encourage their workers to further their education Evaluate whether or not these groups offer quali ed referrals or suggest community based programs which may benefit your client base Because of the very nature of these groups I would say yes they offer qualified referrals because they are a part of the Ohio Family and Job Services Department which is linked to the county and state governments plus they are funded through federal government grants which gives them a listing of whatever resource their clients will need How can sites such as LinkedIn help you stay connected with your professional community and possibly further business opportunities in your chosen eld Sites such as LinkedIn help you stay connected because each time your contacts update their profiles your address book is updated as well and the same is true for you if you move or change jobs as long as you update your profile your contacts will always be able to get in touch with you when necessary A site like LinkedIn which has over 100 million members is able to supply you with all the resources you or your client will ever need With LinkedIn I can interact with other professionals that are more experience in the field than I am and I can use their knowledge to help me help my client Explain how you could use a site such as LinkedIn in your community to stay connected with other human services professionals With LinkedIn I would have control over how people would see me on the internet LinkedIn gives a person keys to control their identity because LinkedIn is such a large network the companies and people listed are usually on the top of search results I would use LinkedIn to keep in contact with the resources necessary to assist my clients with the whatever they need Because LinkedIn is constantly updated with new resources it gives me a larger network of professionals whom I can converse with if I find I cannot resolve an issue with my client within my immediate circle No matter how well informed it is always possible to overlook a means that will be more beneficial than any I can offer by staying connected with LinkedIn I can research and find that resource How can being tied in to the professional community business groups with an online presence help you to offer more support services or quality referrals to your client By being tied to the professional online business community I will expand my reach of not only resources for my clients but I can find better ways to stay connected to my clients so as to be able to track their progress or lack thereof and if they are not progressing I will have access to the proper outlets to help me to be able to help them even if it means passing them on to someone else Online professional sites are available to those who need them and they are a resource for all types of needs even if I were looking for a career move Tips and ideas are shared within the groups and the opportunity to improve your client s prospects for getting help How can attending approved trainings provided by these groups keep you up to date and competitive in your eld By attending these training sessions you do stay up to date on the latest innovations in Whatever field you choose to work It in these approved training sessions you will be informed on the latest changes in the law and What is available to you as the human service worker you may even find some new resources you had not thought or been able to find before that will benefit you and your client These training sessions can even show a way to help a client like the one you may have had to let go because you felt you had done all you could to help himher It can show you if you had taken a different road you might not have had to let that client go to someone else and it can also show you that you did the right thing by turning them over to someone else What are some other technological tools that have been developed to help the individual manage their professional business contacts andor stay connected For example types of phonesapplications etc Some other technological tools developed are the iphone ipad the smart phone these items can surf the net do mapquest have gps capabilities Organize your schedule so that you can set your calendar as to What you need to do each day they are even capable of letting you transact most of your business on the go so that you do not have to worry about your bills or being disconnected from your clients if you have to be out of the office for any reason These items are able to keep you connected worldwide Reference wwwLinkedIncom
