Join me in a FREE Google+ Hangout To Talk About LinkedIn for your Job Hunt!
You’ve heard the buzz: LinkedIn is indispensible for your job search. And its true! There are now more than 300 million people on it, from all over the world. Every occupation, every skill, every business or industry type that you can imagine are all there – and then some.
This coming Monday, August 11th at 1:00p.m. Eastern, I’ll be co-hosting a Google+ Hangout with my colleague and leader in the career industry Dawn Rasmussen.
Our topic will be LinkedIn. We invite you to roll up your sleeves and join us! The Hangout it FREE, and open to all!
Bring your frustrations, questions, and success stories to share. We’ll be providing some of the same tips for LinkedIn networking success for job hunters.
I’ve been saying for years that you should be thinking about LinkedIn in three ways:
1) To get yourself “out there” in a way that you will be found by the people you want to find you. Think recruiters and hiring managers.
2) To find specific job opportunities and people who can help you do more than just apply online to get considered. LinkedIn is the world’s largest job board, outpacing Monster and CareerBuilder. More than just finding job posts, you can see who in your network works for a given company and may be helpful in your networking efforts.
3) And lastly but not to be underestimated in value, LinkedIn is an amazing source of business intelligence for you to learn about companies, and who works there. What is the arc of people who work there with a similar background to yours? What do you have in common with the people with whom you will interview? What to people who used to work for the company you are interested in have to say about it?
Whether you are a neophyte or a veteran, come learn and share. I’m confident you’ll gain a new perspective, and tips that you can use to improve your social media presence. To sign up and receive the login information, click this link: LinkedIn Hangout Enroll.
