Career Networking Group @ SPPL

April 9, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

In today’s market, a LinkedIn profile is a “must have” for any professional or job seeker as more than 90% of companies use LinkedIn to identify or vet a candidate. But just having a profile isn’t enough. Alex Freund, The Landing Expert, will be featured in an insightful and highly valuable presentation for any professional: “LinkedIn: It’s About Being Found.”

This highly interactive session is designed to help you understand the dynamics of LinkedIn and how to position yourself for success. If you cannot be found, you cannot be considered for a position. There are a number of reasons why your profile might not appear in a search. Alex will reveal how to break through these impediments so that YOU make a recruiter’s search list.

And, not all components of your LinkedIn profile are created equal. You will learn which elements of your profile weigh more heavily in searches and which sections require your attention first. Alex will provide tips and easy-to-use tools that you can use right away to optimize your profile.

During this event, participants will:

  • Evaluate the role of LinkedIn in a job search
  • Understand how to structure their profile to be “found”
  • Learn how to address job transitions and unemployment
  • Experience a recruiter’s view of a candidate
  • Distinguish an optimized profile from a poor one
  • Acquire free tools and techniques to create a “stand out” profile
