About the event
Social media has redefined the expectations for people on the job hunt. LinkedIn, especially, is widely used by recruiters and hiring managers to find the best candidates for open positions. The benefits of LinkedIn for job seekers allow them to find new opportunities, reach a new audience, and build their professional networks.
In many career paths, you can no longer find a job simply by filling out applications and distributing resumes. Job seekers need to create an online presence that highlights their experience, abilities and connections. The benefits of LinkedIn for job seekers open new professional pathways that can further your career.
Having a strong LinkedIn presence makes it easier for recruiters and hiring managers to find you. But that’s not all -- it also gives them more confidence that you will thrive as an employee. New employees found through LinkedIn are 40 percent less likely to leave the company within six months.
This session will specifically look at LinkedIn both as a tool to find jobs but also to build an online brand as a professional and expert. It will showcase very practical advice for improving your LinkedIn presence to showcase your talents, experiences and personality to propel you towards career progression and success.
