BCPWN Friday Virtual Luncheon: LinkedIn Profiles for Building Credibility as a Professional and Business Owner
Time and time again, BCPWN members tell us they would like to see more programs and tips on how to best leverage LinkedIn to uplevel their networking and job searching skills. It can be argued that NOW more than ever (due to new normal of virtual living and working) is the time to dedicate resources to ensuring our LinkedIn presence is the best it can be.
LinkedIn is the world's largest online networking platform. We know that it is an invaluable tool for the job seeker, but it is also just as valuable for the business owner in building credibility to their clients.
In this presentation, Ilene Rein of Pounding Pavement 101 will:
- Ask us to consider, "How are you presenting yourself to the world?"
- Provide expert insight as a professional recruiter as to how to best leverage the platform.
- Provide tips and commentary on job-seeking and networking skills using LinkedIn.
Zoom log in credentials will be sent 24-hours in advance to all registered attendees.
