Level Up Your LinkedIn
Find out how to set yourself up for success with a new and improved LinkedIn profile.
About this Event
LinkedIn is the largest social networking platform for professionals, with over 500 million users worldwide. While some people think of LinkedIn only as an online resume, it’s much more than that; LinkedIn is a place for you to showcase your talents and skills, connect with leaders in your industry, and strengthen your digital presence.
Now is the perfect time to ensure that you can use LinkedIn effectively to communicate why you’re a great candidate for new professional opportunities. According to human resources consulting firm RiseSmart, approximately ninety-five percent of job recruiters use LinkedIn to find candidates - but recruiters can’t find you if you don’t have a strong profile. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to improve your LinkedIn presence by writing a dynamic headline, using your “About” section to describe your work clearly, and assembling a comprehensive “Experience” section.
