In April, 2017, LinkedIn announced it had reached 500 million members, making it one of the most popular social networks and one of the top social networks for professionals. LinkedIn can be a powerful resource, especially when you’re aware of some simple features that can have a big impact on your profile. Since LinkedIn is primarily focused on careers, it enables people in career transition to connect with colleagues, potential employers, and recruiters, and it becomes a strong self-marketing tool. In this session, you will learn tips that will enhance how you present yourself, how you use LinkedIn, and make your job-search efforts even more productive.
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.
