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.
