Today, with just an internet connection it seems that finding suitable group of people gathered around ENERGY SECTOR is easy. Maybe is sounds like it is, but it ain’t easy just like that. There are many groups and websites that does the same thing, but without a real value.
So, what these groups cover and what they do?
Well, people involved in many aspects of energy like electric transmission and distribution, power substation engineering, electric construction and operating professionals in the electric power industry, high voltage – are sharing their expirience and knowledge, asking questions and getting answers from professionals.
I know that some people use LinkedIn to find a job, and if so, or you’re looking to change the current job and do something exciting in your life, these groups offer many opportunities to improve your job and career.
One note… if you don’t have LinkedIn account, that’s not the problem. You can make it in few seconds, all you need is 2 minutes of your life and maybe a good black coffee :) To create your LinkedIn account, plese visit http://www.linkedin.com and simply signup.
So, here are groups I’m talking about:
