Please join us for our Crafting an Effective LinkedIn Profile Workshop, October 6th at 1:30pm.

As the economy picks up, and companies begin to hire again, it's never been more important to have an effective social profile online. Studies have shown that:

  • 50 percent of Fortune 100 companies hire employees through LinkedIn; and 
  • Referrals are the best source of confidence recruiters can have in engaging with job applicants 

Having your profile show up in relevant job searches requires a little bit of work on your end, but can pay off big!

This free workshop will focus on your LinkedIn profile. We will cover:

  • How recruiters search for applicants online 
  • Practical tips for crafting an effective social profile: what you need at a minimum to put your best face forward 
  • Top 10 phrases to avoid in your social profile 
  • How to boost your credibility online
