Most people I talk to admit they don’t know how to use LinkedIn to its full potential. I receive comments like, “I have a profile but I’ve done nothing with it.” Or, “I’m on LinkedIn but I don’t really know what to do with it.” Does this sound familiar?
Use LinkedIn to Gain the Competitive Edge
Beginning next week, I’m teaching a two-session course on how job seekers, currently employed professionals, and freelancers/business owners can use LinkedIn to its full potential to find employment opportunities, connections, and sales leads. Once you know how to use LinkedIn, you can easily position yourself head and shoulders above your competition.
Specifically, I’ll be discussing:
- How to brand your profile and make it competitive and easily searchable
- How to connect with key people such as recruiters and potential clients
- How to search for job opportunities related to your interests and qualifications
- How to become recognized as an expert in your field
The class is only $35 and will be held September 22nd and 29th from 6:30pm to 7:30pm at the Nashville Community Education Commission. To register for the class, click here.
In addition to the “How Do I Use LinkedIn?” class in September, I’ll be teaching a resume class in October. This class is designed to help you update your resume so that it is in line with the current trends in what recruiters want to see on a resume, therefore opening the door to securing more job interviews.
The “Resumes That Get You The Interview” class is also $35, but if you register for both classes, you’ll receive $10 off.
