San Mateo Professional Alliance Networking Lunch - Speaker Update

  • Apr 10, 2013 · 12:00 PM

*Speaker Update –

Join the San Mateo Professional Alliance on Wednesday, April 10th for a special presentation from Karmen Reed - How to Make Your Linkedin Profile Work For You.

Linkedin is the place where you will get the biggest return on your professional visibility investment online. Whether you're looking for a new job or just trying to stay in the game, Linkedin rules when it comes to getting information, establishing professional connections, acquiring clients, or hiring your best employees.

As a professional, how do you stand out from the crowd on LinkedIn? How do you differentiate yourself from the millions of professional users on the network? What will make your profile visitors want to learn more about you and your business to ultimately connect with you?

Enhancing your personal brand and strengthening your digital footprint requires spicing up your Linkedin profile:
• You will get to know the most important Linkedin profile areas to focus on
• And biggest Linkedin profile mistakes you need to avoid

Leveraging the power of LinkedIn begins with building a solid professional profile and presence – it’s time to give it your full attention.
