In our meetings at San Francisco Professional Career Network, we hear that networking is the #1 topic of interest. Earlier this year, we learned how to develop our personal brand and our personal marketing plan. We practiced social fluency – being comfortable with personal interaction.
We network – meet, talk, and exchange business cards. Then inevitably, we are asked:
“Are you on LinkedIn?”
Is LinkedIn an online resume? An expanded business card? Should you share personal information? Is anyone even looking?
This Tuesday, corporate trainer Sandra Clark, will show us how to use LinkedIn to enhance our personal brand, promote our expertise, and gain attention from recruiters and employers.
You will learn how to:
• Create an inviting profile that effectively promotes yourself
• Choose and use keywords to show up in searches
• Create a powerful professional tagline to showcase your expertise
• Manage your profile and account settings to continually improve your profile.
Sandra has offered to review a few of our LinkedIn profiles during her presentation. If you would like to be considered, mention this in your RSVP and include your LinkedIn public profile URL.
Join us to take your networking public on LinkedIn, the world’s largest business network.
