    As others have said, this was another top notch, very well organized and very well carried out event of the Chicago Opportunities Group. Susan is a very polished speaker, and it was great to hear about Linked In from a professional recruiter's perspective. She gave a lot of good tips so we could make better use of Linked In to find jobs and to improve our prospects of consideration for them, or promote our businesses. And then I heard that she came all the way from Schaumburg for us, and I was even more grateful. It was also great that so many people also took advantage of the situation to stay afterward and network, both with Susan and each other. If this can be repeated in an evening session for those who weren't able to make it today, I would very highly recommend that they make every effort to attend. And by the way, the Next Door Cafe was a great place to hold the event, and I can see why so many groups use it as a venue.

    Hi there, will this event be geared more towards the recruiting end of LinkedIn or for people who are looking for new jobs?
