Many of you may have questions about how to navigate the site and get the most out of your membership with this new function. We are here to help! Below you will find a crash course in SocialLink, allowing you to get the most out of your WAHspace membership!

Quick Links Tab
The Quick Links Tab is located in the top navigation bar on your profile, as shown below.
The quick links tab is your go-to spot for all things WAH! With this tab, you can access the WAH Job Board, get awesome tips from our WAH blog, get your background check in the WAH Toolbox, and take our assessments in WAH University!
Sending a Connection Request
WAHspace is not a regular job platform, we’re a community. We want you to connect with other WAH Members, and even WAH Certified Companies! Below are the steps to take to send a connection request:
Click on Directory in the top navigation
Enter your search parameters (members in your state, or enter the name of the person you want to connect with)
You will see a list of members in your search, click on the person’s name
You will then be told that you are not connected, click on “Send a connection request”
You can also search by member type (useful in connecting with WAH Certified Companies). Select the member type you are looking for and follow steps 3 &4 above.
You can manage your connections within the Connections Tab on the top navigation. Below is what you will see. All new requests will show here as well for your approval.
Managing your preferences
Within your profile, click on “Information and Settings” to update your preferences.
Choose your e-mail and notification settings, as well as update your permissions for connections and more!
You are now officially a WAHspace master! If there was something that we did not cover, be sure to let us know by sending us an e-mail at email@example.com, or posting your question to your feed for your fellow WAHspacers!
