Pennsylvania – Summer’s here, and your mind may be on many places other than work.

Linked In’s Career Expert Blair Decembrelle can understand, but she has this advice: “If you’re slowing down a little bit at work, that doesn’t mean you have to be slowing down when it comes to building your professional network.”

And she says, here are two good ways to do it. “If you have old colleagues that you haven’t spoken with in a while, reach out to those colleagues. If you see folks through your alumni network on Linked In, tap them, reach out to those people ask them about their experience.”
