This workshop is unique – it shows you not only how to use LinkedIn, but also why. The majority of LinkedIn users who create a profile, join some groups, and then sit back and wait for the magic to happen. This is like buying a hammer and expecting it to build an addition to your house – all by itself. Like the hammer, LinkedIn is a tool. Before you start building that addition, you determined what the end result would be, and created a blueprint. This workshop helps you create your LinkedIn blueprint. You'll determine what you want LinkedIn to do (position you as an expert in your field, increase visibility to recruiters and hiring managers, build your network, generate business leads, etc.).
This workshop is hands-on – you'll be working on your own profile and network. You'll also receive a detailed workbook with step-by-step instructions and screen shots for you to use as a reference tool after the class.
A reminder email will be sent the day before each workshop
