"Linkedin has become an incredibly powerful tool for building and maintaining your professional network. Join us for this hands-on, interactive workshop where you will be guided step-by-step through the process of enhancing your profile and networking for job leads. We will discuss changing your headline, adding skills, building a powerful summary, and adding links and documents to show examples of your work. Additional topics will include: ways to reach out other professionals, asking for in-person networking meetings (often called informational interviews) and how to join and benefit from participating in groups. With Linkedin making changes quite frequently to its interface, you'll also have the chance to ask questions. Join us so you can take full advantage of Linkedin, grow your professional connections, and open up to new opportunities. This session will be taught by Career Coach & Linkedin Trainer, Sabrina Woods (please note: date and location changed, originally scheduled for August)
