Program Description:
The highly professional context of the LinkedIn platform presents those at every stage of their career with unprecedented opportunities for developing a strong personal brand, researching target companies, and connecting with the right people. How you represent yourself in your LinkedIn profile, communicate your value to your LinkedIn network, and apply information gleaned from the LinkedIn site will drive your real world outcomes.

Yet despite its immense popularity, LinkedIn remains a mystery for so many. The site, now approaching 350 million users, continues on a path of relentless change. There are new strategies to learn, new ways to format LinkedIn profile content, and new approaches to take with your existing LinkedIn network that can lead to meaningful connections, greater visibility, and more opportunities.

If you have spent considerable time on LinkedIn, then you have picked up on trends and perhaps arrived at the point where the site has proven to be valuable.

You will learn:

  • How to keyword your LinkedIn profile for maximum visibility and reach
  • How to build a social brand that will get you noticed by recruiters
  • How to assemble a deep, opportunity-rich professional LinkedIn network
  • How to mine your existing LinkedIn connections for career opportunities
  • How to gain quality introductions to influencers and hiring managers
  • How to boost trust and credibility through LinkedIn recommendations
  • How to manage your time more effectively on LinkedIn
