      Hi Jehana, There is a How to Use LinkedIn class at the library tomorrow, Tuesday. It is a different focus; teaches the technical ins and outs of LinkedIn, not really the how tos about how to make your profile more appealing to recruiters. But it is a great class and you will learn a lot there. Tomorrow, Tuesday, 6PM, 5th Floor Computer Training Room, Main Library. There is a meetup here about it. I hope to see you there!
