It's never been more important to have an effective social profile online. Studies have shown that 50% of Fortune 100 companies hire employees through LinkedIn, and referrals are the best source of confidence recruiters can have in engaging with job applicants. Having your profile show up in relevant job searches requires a little bit of work on your end, but can pay off big! This free workshop will focus on your LinkedIn profile. We will cover:

  • How recruiters search for applicants online
  • Practical tips for crafting an effective social profile: what you need at a minimum to put your best face forward
  • Top 10 phrases to avoid in your social profile 
  • How to boost your credibility online
