LINKEDIN FROM A RECRUITER PERSPECTIVE
Nearly every industry uses LinkedIn to find candidates, and according to data from a recent Society of Human Resource Management survey over 90% of recruiters rely on the site. Through a live demonstration as well as a question and answer session, learn what recruiters are looking for in a LinkedIn profile. Take away tips that will help you tweak your LinkedIn profile to get noticed and present yourself as a qualified and desirable employee.

Guest Speaker: Michaela Kennedy, livingHR

LINKS is an acronym for Leads, Information, Networking, Know-how, and Strategies. It is an educational and motivational program designed to help candidates prepare for the week ahead and to share conversation, contacts, and job-search information in a relaxed, welcoming environment. For the unemployed professional, LINKS is a “place to go” to focus on the job search when others go to work on Monday Mornings. LINKS sessions are free and open to the public. Reservations are required.
