Are you on LinkedIn, but haven’t fully tapped the networking aspect of this impressive social media tool? In this workshop, you’ll learn how to use the broad reach of LinkedIn to effectively network for jobs or other career related information and leads.

Topics will include reaching out to LinkedIn connections to grow your network and assist with job leads, informational interviewing, how to write a message or email to a second level connection or someone you don’t have a connection to, the networking philosophy of “How can I help,” conversation openers, LinkedIn Groups, and maintaining or strengthening your existing connections.

Bring your own computer or tablet: Indicate on registration if you don't have one and we will provide it. The number of computers is limited.

Optional critiques: From 12:00pm–12:30pm we will host an optional LinkedIn Profile Peer Critique session. To participate, print and bring two hard copies of the first two pages of your profile.   

Prerequisites: Individuals who have already developed their LinkedIn profile including past work experience, those who have joined at least one group and have looked at/explored their LinkedIn homepage content on at least a few occasions.
