LinkedIn - 4 November

How to use LinkedIn for networking & job searching
LinkedIn is an important tool in every jobseeker’s toolkit. Many employers and recruiters search for new talent on LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional network. If you’re currently looking for your next job, it is critical to take the time to build your LinkedIn profile, add to your connections, and effectively use them to aid your job search. The more complete your LinkedIn profile, the greater your chances of being found and contacted by an employer.

By the end of this workshop you will learn how to:

  • create an appealing LinkedIn profile targeted towards your ideal employer
  • research jobs on LinkedIn
  • approach contacts, recruiters and hiring managers

Make sure to have an accessible LinkedIn account and to bring your own laptop for this interactive workshop.
