What Happened on Social Media for NRWA Pros in February
By Amanda Brandon, NRWA Newsletter Editor
The networking on our Facebook group blew up this month! I hope everyone is enjoying all the collaboration and getting value out of these interactions. I sure am!
Valuable Conversations: Here are three conversations you may have missed on Facebook this month. Lots of value for growing your business!
- There’s a great thread on the impending changes to LinkedIn ProFinder—Go check it out here. One marketing alternative was to be the resume writer for LinkedIn Groups. I’m adding this to my weekly professional development hour. (More on this next month!)
- The tools conversations have been excellent, particularly the discussion on what to use for calls when you’re traveling. I personally learned so much about ways to leverage calls with a Zoom account. I struggle with this on occasion—getting blocked by client phone spam filters, my number showing up as my husband’s name, and out-of-area calls that people don’t want to answer. I can see a Zoom invite for a call only being good for all involved! See that conversation here.
- Full voicemail boxes and other client hang-ups that may be hampering their job search: This was a lively discussion on how to overcome the “full voicemail box” with texts or emails. I like pointing out to clients these small things that add up to big changes for their job search. Big kudos to Kiersten’s hubby for bringing her a latte to help her frustrating situation! See that conversation here.
Pet Colleague of the Month:
Julia Mattern’s Kalani and Makana like to help her cook up new resume strategies! They have a regular strategy session before she makes soup for the week. Sometimes they fall asleep on the job. I guess it’s an occupational hazard of being in such a warm place!

What’s Saving My Life This Month?
This is a new feature for the newsletter! I started a conversation in our Facebook group to get some feedback, and it led me to a tool that’s saving my life – I finally invested in a real project management tool.
Many pros chimed in on how to leverage productivity management tools, and Dawn gave a great sanity-saving tip: “Walk away from your phone!”
