Julia Holian - Get the Most Out of LinkedIn

Details

Overview of topic:
LinkedIn is the first place hiring managers and recruiters look to get a snapshot of a person they want to interview – so let’s give you a profile that pops! We will discuss the essentials for creating a LinkedIn profile that not only gets noticed, but also keeps the reader engaged and looking through your whole profile. I will provide examples for branding your headline and summary sections in ways to draw people to your page, and we will walk through the pros and cons of sections like endorsements, skills, and recommendations. If time permits, we will explore the search function in LinkedIn to help you research jobs, companies and people in preparation for launching a job search and getting ready for an interview.
