This Week in Philadelphia (TWIP) for 2/3

It's Groundhog Day! No, wait, that was yesterday, wasn't it? Well, I do know we're coming up on the Year of the Rat, and the Philadelphia chapter of the National Association of Asian American Professionals is holding a fundraising dinner at the Sang Kee Peking Duck House.

This also happens to be International Networking Week, an initiative of BNI. Meetings are being held around the globe to raise the visibility of professional networking as a key imperative for success in today's world. Held around the globe, that is, but NOT in Philadelphia.

I'm also speaking on Saturday at the Career Transitions meeting on Effective Use of LinkedIn. I've had fun doing the research, but I'm at that point where I'm feeling a little nervous about the presentation. Come join us, if you would like to know more about LinkedIn.
