How Dynamic is your Linked In Profile?

Wednesday, October 11, 2017
12:00 noon
Facilitator: Jed Gifford

Is your purpose to feature yourself for an active or passive job search, find new clients, hire new employees or something else? Let’s team up and figure it out together! We will discuss the following:

  • Why is LinkedIn so important in general?
  • Personal Branding and Messaging
  • Visibility through Networking

Whatever your intentions, maintaining a memorable professional digital footprint is absolutely essential. Your LinkedIn profile should showcase your “Sizzle Factor!”

  • This will be an interactive session. Be ready to participate. Some volunteers’ profiles may even be featured! Bring your questions and feel free to bring your laptop or iPad/Tablet as well.
