LinkedIn: Its About Being Found” Presentation
Alex Freund, The Landing Expert, will present “LinkedIn: It’s About Being Found.” A LinkedIn career profile is a “must have” for any professional or job seeker today as more than 90% of companies use LinkedIn to identify or vet a candidate. But, it isn’t enough. When recruiters and hiring managers search LinkedIn for potential candidates, you may be blocked from their search results for a number of reasons and never even know it. Freund will share how to ensure your profile is optimized to be found and tips that increase your chances of success. You will learn how to position yourself at the top of the “found” list searches, how to structure your profile for maximum exposure, and why it is important to be active on LinkedIn.
