Social media has changed and impacted most parts of our society, and the process of job searching and career management is no exception. Knowing how to master all of the parts of social media, including LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, email, blog posts, and other up and coming hubs will give you a tremendous advantage over those who don't. We will address the best means of managing your portfolio of online information to your best advantage. LinkedIn is a powerful tool for connecting with hiring managers and recruiters, as well as to network with professionals working in your field. We will break down how a LinkedIn profile is set up and help you search engine optimize fields so you show up higher in search results. Also, we will discuss how to use Linkedin to connect directly with hiring manager and recruiters, which can give you a route to bypass applicant tracking systems (ATS) that can leave your resume in a black hole.
Notes about our venue: Rogue Ale House provides space for our presentations free of charge as a service to the community. Because of the serving of alcohol on the premises, our presentations are restricted to those who are 21 or older and can produce valid proof of age if requested. Also, we request that outside food and drink are not brought into Rogue, as we would currently be forced to shut down this service if Rogue decided that we were no longer welcome.
