You have perfected your LinkedIn profile and yet still not been contacted by your dream employer. LinkedIn must be useless, right? Wrong! Using LinkedIn to get a job is much more than uploading a professional headshot and embellishing your About section. Once your profile matches with your experience and reflects a professional image, the next step is not to wait for the phone to ring. Now it’s time to put LinkedIn to work getting you BACK to work.
In this meeting Katherine Burik walks us through actionable techniques to use LinkedIn as an effective tool for research, preparation and communication. She will demonstrate (at least) 10 ways LinkedIn can help to get your next job.
Included in this presentation will be how to:
- Identify companies that match your career objectives
- Research the companies you’re interested in to prepare for interviews and tailor your approach
- Follow targeted companies and get notified of job postings before they hit the job boards
- Discover how to network your way to the decision maker
- Learn techniques to build your network and why you would want to
- Create and manage LinkedIn job alerts
- And several other ways this platform can help to get in front of the right people and emphasize the right skills
