 LinkedIn: It's About Being Found

About This Event

LinkedIn: It’s about being found.  In today's market, a LinkedIn profile is a "must have" for any professional or job seeker as more than 90% of companies use LinkedIn to identify or vet a candidate. But having a profile isn't enough -- it's ALL about being found. Alex Freund, The Landing Expert, will be featured in an insightful and highly valuable presentation for any professional: "LinkedIn: It's About Being Found."

This highly interactive session is designed to help you understand the dynamics of LinkedIn and how to position yourself for success. If you cannot be found, you cannot be considered for a position. There are a number of reasons why your profile might not appear in a search. Alex will reveal how to break through these impediments so that YOU make a recruiter's search list.

And, not all components of your LinkedIn profile are created equal. In this presentation, you will learn which elements of your profile weigh more heavily in searches and which sections require your attention first. Alex will provide tips and easy-to-use tools that you can use right away to optimize your profile giving you a distinct competitive advantage.

Few spend much time cultivating their "headline" often inserting their last job title. But this important piece of real estate is how viewers define you - often within seconds. Learn how to structure a strong, compelling headline that has the viewer wanting to learn more about YOU.
