Why use LinkedIn?

There is a lot of buzz surrounding LinkedIn, especially since they have topped 200 million users worldwide. LinkedIn has  become the de facto tool for professionals to network.

LinkedIn Boot Camp

So the question is why don’t you use it to it’s full potential?

If you break it down into it’s simplest form, LinkedIn is basically a customizable directory.  Over 200 million people have listed contact information, skills and expertise — giving others a professional summary about themselves. Users then reach out to colleagues and former coworkers in order to establish their network.

Thus your profile and your connections say a lot about you.

The goal of next week’s LinkedIn Boot Camp is to help you learn more about LinkedIn and it’s potential.

Day 1
This day we will focus mainly how to craft your profile to show off your skills. The inclusion of keywords in your profile will help you show up in results more often.

Day 2
On this day we will focus on how to build and maintain your network. We will discuss endorsements, how to write and ask for recommendations, how to connect with others, and what groups to join.

Day 3
The third day will explore how LinkedIn is a valuable research tool. We will also discuss the pros and cons of premium accounts and how to stay on top of your industry.

The Boot Camp run March 4, 5, and 6 at 6pm. Each class will be about an hour and all the classes will be held in CO6.

No preregistration required.

Bring a pen and paper for notes.

Hope to see you there.
