Online Professional Networking
In a church as large as ours, we interact with many others, but most of us still know only a fraction of our membership. Fellow church members offer a tremendous resource for business and professional networking, which benefits those seeking employment, and can be the foundation for new friendships as well. According to labor experts, more than 70% of all jobs are found though personal networking. One study found that an individual who is personally referred to an employer has 40 times greater probability of being hired than a candidate not referred to the employer!
In order to allow Dunwoody UMC members to network online, a new LinkedIn group called "DunwoodyUMC Network" has been established and is open to all Dunwoody UMC members. Membership requires approval by a group manager, but any Dunwoody UMC member will be welcome. Dunwoody UMC non-members will be approved only if they demonstrate an established relationship to DUMC.
If you are interested in professional networking with fellow DUMC church members, please join the DunwoodyUMC Network group at LinkedIn. If you are already a LinkedIn member, search the group directory for "DunwoodyUMC" and join the group. If you are not a LinkedIn member, go to www.LinkedIn.com and join.
