In this seminar/workshop, you will learn how to use LinkedIn to:

- Create an attention-grabbing Profile in a place where recruiters search for candidates.

- Conduct research to develop employment prospects for a career or industry change, for a change in your geographic location, or for your business.

- Implement an interview-getting, opportunity-creating strategy for building and managing your network.

- Increase your response from job ads.

- Get the introductions and meetings you want, including the use of specific, effective verbiage and phrases.

- Keep in touch with your network so they remember you when an opportunity arises.

- Contact people you don't know, directly, to get interviews.
