ACA conference 2011 – New Orleans & wonder of Twitter

25 Mar

Unfortunately, I’m unable to attend the conference…however, thanks to the wonder of Twitter searches…I…and “you” can live vicariously through the tweets of others.  If your interested in following the conference check out #acaconf (the offical hashtag of ACA) 🙂

If you think twitter is just for the tweenies, think again.  It is an awesome place for news and information.  My personal preference is to use it as a short/live feed mini RSS on topics of interests – including counseling/psychology.  As a result, beginning professionals are able to network with established professionals around the world.  I highly recommend that graduate students/ new professionals create a “generic” / professional page…(we’ll call this Step: Ongoing in the process of professional development) :);)

After creating a professional page, search out others that are in or pursuing the same profession.  You never know who you might meet and how he/she may be connected professionally.  It’s “6 degrees of separation” turned active participation.
