LinkedIn 101

LinkedIn operates the world’s largest professional network on the Internet with more than 350 million members in over 200 countries and territories.  You don’t have to have a huge LinkedIn network to use LinkedIn effectively to find a job.  Not only do you not have to have a large network of connections on LinkedIn, there are MANY ways to leverage LinkedIn to find a job or market your own business.

Recruiters use LinkedIn to search for, find, and contact potential candidates on a daily basis.  Many people are unaware of all the great features on LinkedIn for job seekers and this workshop will allow you to discover them and learn how to use them.  Bring your laptop and/or tablet to this interactive session to enhance your learning experience.

  • Showcase your work or portfolio
  • Increase your LinkedIn connections with like-minded people who can help you in your career and your business
  • Understand how recommendations work, how to get them, and how they can be a huge added benefit to your profile
