Career Transition SIG
New LinkedIn: Behind the Veil

Andrew O'Hearn

About this event:

A For most job-seekers, LinkedIn is their default online branding presence, networking tool, and social-media job-posting source ... And yet, according to August 2016 statistics, the average LinkedIn user spends just 17 minutes per month on the site. 

Why? Because they haven't learned how to exploit the full range of hacks, workarounds, and expert-level contacts hidden within LinkedIn -- especially since the design interface changeover in early 2017.

Andy O'Hearn has successfully trained job seekers on LinkedIn for just under a decade ... and constantly pushes himself to learn the latest and greatest practices and tactics. His LinkedIn presentations are not only jam-packed with valuable information ... they are also personalized to each class and user, and oftentimes entertaining as well (check his LinkedIn-recommendation testimonials -- or ask anyone who attended his Ramsey Job-Search Work Team presentation on April 3, 2017 -- or his Hunterdon County Library presentation on March 30).

Best of all, Andy provides the vast majority of this advice at no cost, other than reciprocal connections and endorsements -- because he has been in job seekers' shoes, and doesn't ever want them to forgo an investment in their future simply because they're watching every dollar.

Similar seminars continue to be advertised for hundreds of dollars ... so why not take advantage of Andy's insights while they are still low/no cost?

 About the Presenter:



Andy O'Hearn is a corporate and internal communications thought leader, writer, managing editor, and social-web/analytics researcher. His business and consulting experience spans start-up ventures to industry-leading international companies. He is also a highly adept LinkedIn trainer and coach.
Andy also brings to the table more than 10 years of digital marketing and social media coaching and development, and has also completed postgraduate coursework in law, library/information science, and digital marketing/analytics/pay-per- click, and career coaching.

Although Andy's 5,000+ LinkedIn connections rate him as a LinkedIn super-connector and power user, he qualifies that by saying, "It’s not about adding connections, but rather, building relationships."
As of April 10, 2017, Andy has landed a one-year contract position at Bayer Corporation (pharmaceutical) in Whippany, NJ as a communications specialist, supporting the Quality Compliance Sourcing & Training (QCST) function within the DS&A (Data Science and Analytics) Training and Communications team (i.e., as part of QCST).
