Some days, you might wonder why you need more social media in your life. Isn’t Facebook enough? Why, just why, do you want to check yet another site. Pinterest? Instagram? You’re just not going there.

But if you’re not on LinkedIn, you’re doing your professional life a disservice. Forget silly game requests and photo sharing. LinkedIn is all about furthering your career, connecting with colleagues and learning about your industry. As a water or wastewater operator, you’ll find an endless pool of knowledge to answer technical questions, provide advice on plant operations and more.
