Rock Your Job Search With an Optimized LinkedIn Profile

It’s no secret that LinkedIn is an important tool for the job search. In fact, 97% of recruiters use it daily to find candidates. Yet only 57% of job seekers use LinkedIn to find new opportunities. Clearly, job seekers are not utilizing the full potential of LinkedIn! In our workshop you will learn how to make LinkedIn a tremendous asset to your job search and overall career management. From conveying your authentic brand to finding target companies, while leveraging connections and groups, we will focus on:

  • Creating or strengthening your profile, with a focus on the key actions for each section of your LinkedIn profile so that you stand out.

  • Building and managing your network.

  • Using LinkedIn daily for the job search and ongoing career management

  • Sharing updates and content to make your LinkedIn profile pop!

  • Utilizing LinkedIn to find target companies and key influencers 

  • Creating effective messaging when engaging with current or potential LinkedIn connections.
