HARNESS THE POWER OF LINKED IN TO:

- GET THAT JOB!

- BUILD YOUR BUSINESS!


LinkedIn is one of the most important tools in today's job market!  Not only is it THE most effective way to get a job but it's an important resource for building any business!

I'm happy to announce that Rebecca Martin, career coach and founder of an independent editing and publishing house, has agreed to conduct a LinkedIn workshop for us!

Food & Drink specials will be offered (at probably some of the most amazing happy hour prices I've seen in a long time in this area)!  There will also be raffles for some GREAT prizes (books, coaching sessions, gift certificates and more)!

It's going to be a truly FUN night!

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Have you ever asked yourself:

• Do I NEED a LinkedIn profile?

• Should my LinkedIn profile look just like my resume?

• Does anyone even READ what you post on LinkedIn?

• Why isn’t my LinkedIn profile leading to any quality connections?

• HOW can LinkedIn get me a job?

• Should I use LinkedIn differently to build my business?

• What's an endorsement and is it important?


Rebecca Martin, founder of an independent editing and publishing house and recognized career coach, will be sharing her advice on effectively utilizing LinkedIn to get employed and/or grow your business, including a hands on demonstration as she builds a sample profile!   After this class, you’ll know how create a LinkedIn profile that shouts "LOOK AT ME AND WHAT I CAN DO"  by showcasing not what you've DONE but what you are capable of DOING! It’s one you won’t want to miss!


The class takes place from 7:00-9:00! It's a pretty packed class, so  please aim to be there to start on time!  You can come early to settle in and order food and drink.  After the class, you'll have time to speak with Rebecca directly (she will hang out until about 10:00 in a quieter part of the restaurant) to ask her any questions and/or to let her briefly glance at your current profile.

Computers aren't needed, but you are free to bring yours if it will be helpful for you to use during the workshop (there is wireless internet - just not a lot of outlets, so make sure it's charged)

Again, be sure to get there slightly early (we start PROMPTLY at 7pm, no matter what) to place your food and drink orders as there will be minimal orders taken during the workshop.

You'll also have a chance to win some great prizes including books, gift certificates, free coaching sessions and more!!
