Launching and Refining Your Linkedin Profile
If you aren’t using LinkedIn during your career search or business networking, you are missing out on one of the fastest growing and more effective career tools on the market. LinkedIn has a much broader and greater use than just finding a job. It’s long been a tool that professionals use for a variety of reasons, such as an online “Rolodex,” a marketing tool, an online presentation platform, a forum for private and public discussions, and much more. And as it has grown over the last few years, more and more attention has been placed on it to help connect job seekers with career opportunities. Its greatest benefit is connecting the seeker with the job opportunity via networking through your contacts to the people that are looking to hire new talent.
This class will go beyond the basics, although basics will be discussed. However, the goal is to focus on the ability to leverage LinkedIn to help locate jobs, contacts, or leads. You’ll learn both why and how to be a professional online networker and how to make LinkedIn work for you in your job search!
- The profile
- How to best utilize Groups
- LinkedIn and your job search

Anyone can attend, whether or you are currently in a job search or simply want to learn more about LinkedIn.
