Crafting an Effective LinkedIn Profile
Wednesday, March 20, 2019 - 2:00pm to Wednesday, March 20, 2019 - 4:30pm

It's never been more important to have an effective social profile online. Studies have shown that 50% 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

Join Janet Johnson, a long-time student of online social behavior and digital marketing resource to Fortune 100 companies, for a practical and down-to-earth workshop. This is a free event but space is limited, so register today! Questions? Contact CEPE at 503.719.7655 or cepe@pdx.edu. #pdxdms
