Why is LinkedIn so valuable? How do I get access to an account? How do I use my existing account to full advantage?
Start 2013 with a LinkedIn workshop presented by Mike Neubauer, senior career coach with the national career consultation group, Lee Hecht Harrison. Mike has more than 16 years of experience working with clients and groups to give them a competitive advantage in their job search. The workshop will be held on Tuesday, January 8th, from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m., at the Boulder JCC, 3800 Kalmia Avenue, Boulder. The Jewish Community Career Network (JCCN) and BJCC are co-sponsoring this valuable free event.
In today’s fast-paced job market, an effective search requires a competitive advantage. The ability to use current technologies is critical to that advantage. Please bring a laptop or tablet with wireless capabilities to follow along and make changes to your LinkedIn account. Be prepared for an in-depth discussion on how to leverage LinkedIn.com for that competitive edge and learn:
— how to be found by recruiters.
— how to use LinkedIn to rapidly expand your network in a targeted fashion.
— how to prepare for interviews using LinkedIn.
The JCCN is a free service open to all job seekers, career changers, small business owners and anyone interested in networking. Meetings are held every second and fourth Tuesday evening of the month at the Boulder JCC, from 7 – 8:30 p.m., and are generally led by Barbara Behrendt, senior career consultant with Lee Hecht Harrison. “Ramping up your interviewing skills” will be the focus on January 22th, so mark your calendars.
