BeKnown and a GIVEAWAY!

I was approached by a representative of and asked to tell you all about their new professional networking tool through Facebook. This great new tool is called BeKnown and helps young professionals connect to the world of networking using their Facebook profiles. Who knew all those hundreds of "friends" could actually help you network? :)

Let's say that you work for a certain advertising company and one of your FB friends is interested in getting into advertising or would like more information about that company. The young professional is able to view your profile (and the company's) on BeKnown and are able to see what jobs are available, who they can contact for more information, and information about the company.

You can connect to BeKnown through Facebook here, or you if you are tech savvy and enjoy doing everything from your cell phone, you can get the iPhone app here. I do want to put a little message here because I am adamant about finding balance in your life and this tool combines social and professional lives together. Please make sure that you are not always "working". Do find time to do something completely for yourself that doesn't involve work. I think I will do a post on tips I have found to be helpful. Hmm...stay tuned.

Want to know more about BeKnown and how to get started? Go here for a great guided video tour. I watched every minute to learn more and I have to say, I am actually excited about this tool. So get out there and Be Known!
