Using Linked In To Get Recruiters' Attention

Almost every recruiter uses Linked In to find candidates. If you set up your profile correctly and use Linked In correctly, you can increase the chances a recruiter contacts you.

We will go over each aspect of the Linked In profile, how to obtain recommendations which appeal to recruiters, how to join groups and everything else you need to get a recruiters attention.

We also will look at various people's Linked In profiles so that you can have models to follow.

Feel free to bring your laptop and work on your Link In page during this session.

Finally, we will discuss some recruiters' beliefs that Linked In will replace resumes in the future. This is important for your job search.

Events at the Microsoft Store's Training Center require business causal attire. However, many people do dress up as if they are headed to a professional job interview.

Often, BJSP attendees meet at 7:00 AM at Panera Bread in Tyson's Mall prior to this event.

    The seminar was very helpful and the information was easy to apply. I'd recommend it if the session is repeated.

    Hi, I was looking forward to this meet up, so much so that I arrived at 7:15 at Tyson's Center. I could not find an entrance to the mall! I know this sounds crazy but even the construction workers there could not help me gain entrance so I returned home! Pleae let me know if this session will be repeated as I truly would like to participate.
    Thank you,
    Jeanne Sanders

      Hi Ladies, for next time the store is inside the mall. Park in the garage near Nordstrom, enter the mall through the mall entrance (not Nordstrom) take the escalator to the 2nd level and walk behind the escalator and to the left and you'll see the store on the right.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
