Class Outline

LinkedIn is one of the most effective tools you can use for networking. This workshop will show you how to: (1) prepare to be found with an effective and compelling LinkedIn profile, (2) find connections that will help in either your job search or recruiting new talent using LinkedIn's advanced search and the new alumni portal, and (3) foster meaningful relationships that will enhance your professional opportunities. This workshop will benefit those who are already on LinkedIn or those who are curious about the value of this global networking resource. There will also be a brief introduction to the other networking resources provided by the Church and CES.
