LinkedIn

Are you on LinkedIn?  Do you think it's necessary for teachers?

My husband reports that potential employers actually do look at LinkedIn profiles, which is why he keeps his updated and at 100% completion.  He doesn't use it for much else.  I'm beginning to wonder if it's a profile I need, too.

My common sense (and past experiences) tell me that so many schools & districts use their own online programs, so what's the point of this additional network?  I think I registered as a member of about 4 different online job database resources when I was on the hunt.  And that's just for one area.  Additionally...I'm a teacher.  A public servant.  How much use is it really going to be for me, networking in this venue?
