There’s no question that LinkedIn is one of the most valuable job search tools available today. But the average job seeker probably uses less than 50% of the potential that LinkedIn can deliver. Your LinkedIn profile can be a tremendous asset to your search if it’s built right. The LinkedIn platform can help you uncover a lot of hard-to-find companies, if you know how to find them. Having a lot of LinkedIn connections can be extremely useful, if you know how to leverage them. And joining a lot of LinkedIn groups can be powerful if you know how to integrate them into your overall job search marketing effort. In short, it takes a comprehensive LinkedIn job search plan in order to exploit the full power of its capabilities. That’s what this workshop will address.
During this 2.5-hour instructional session, MARTY GILBERT, NSENG founder and job search coach, will walk you through the LinkedIn platform and provide you with his perspectives on the following topics:
- Specific goals of an effective LinkedIn profile
- Actions you should take in each section of your profile to make your background stand out
- How Search Engine Optimization (SEO) plays a huge part in attracting recruiters
- What recruiters see in the back-end of LinkedIn when looking for qualified candidates
- How to use LinkedIn criteria-based searches to find more target companies and key influencers
- Example scripts on how to engage your LinkedIn connections for help
- Marketing and social media tactics on how to draw more traffic to your LinkedIn profile
- How you can use an Artificial Intelligence extension to LinkedIn to get background on the people you may be interviewing with before you even meet them
Copies of a few key slides will be distributed before the workshop so please come to this session prepared to take notes. This session will not be recorded.
