LinkedIn Learning / Lynda

People from all professions use LinkedIn to find employment and stay in touch with their professional contacts. But there is much more to the platform. Sure, 35 million job seekers visit LinkedIn every month. But those numbers are dwarfed by the hours LinkedIn members spend engaging with their peer community, learning new skills, and interacting with other non-recruitment areas of the LinkedIn platform.

At its core, LinkedIn exists to connect you with opportunities. Research shows that members who write a well-crafted profile and keep it updated regularly are more engaged with their community and get more value from the site. Knowing how to build a dynamic profile that tells your story is the key to unlock the power of LinkedIn. By keeping it fresh, you get connected with like-minded peers and get a more interesting news feed. Share your passions and you’ll find ways to engage with charities and other worthy organizations. Share your skills and get relevant training to fill in your knowledge gaps.

This session is full of tips so you can ROCK YOUR PROFILE and get the most out of the LinkedIn ecosystem. Plus learn about additional services available from LinkedIn that you haven’t discovered yet!
