Need to learn more about LinkedIn, the mammoth professional networking site? Want to understand how to use LinkedIn to get your next job, or your next client?
I’ll be presenting “Unlocking LinkedIn” to the Wisconsin chapter of the Society for Technical Communication next week. Join us on Tuesday, September 16 at the Country Inn and Suites in Brookfield, WI. Details and registration are here.
This session was originally scheduled for last spring, but as with most social networking sites, much has changed over the summer. I’m updating the presentation.
You’ll find something valuable in this talk whether you’re new to the profession, a person working full-time or an independent consultant/contractor.
I’ll be focusing on three areas:
- Enhancing your personal profile, with a few tricks many people miss. I’ll also be discussing setting up a company page for independent consultants.
- Demonstrating your authority, skills, and talents by creating content through group participation and the new Professional Publishing Platform.
- Using LinkedIn’s basic and advanced search to find your dream job! LinkedIn offers great tools to find people at companies you want to work for. I’ll also help you decide whether LinkedIn Premium is the right choice for you.
I’ll also be giving away a copy of Build Your Author Platform: The New Rules.
Hope to see you next week! If you have any questions or other topics you’d like to hear about, leave a comment here or on the STC-Wisconsin page.
