LinkedIn as a Job Search Tool

Career Blog Networking

Published: April 4, 2017 by Kate M. Spaulding

By now, I know you know that LinkedIn should be part of your job-hunting arsenal (I think you also need a website). But maybe you’re switching careers, or haven’t updated your profile in a while, or aren’t sure about what you should include or exclude. However, even if you have a perfectly put-together and up-to-date-profile, you might not know how to really make LinkedIn work for you (I don’t).

Good news! On Wednesday, April 5 at 5:30 PM Pacific Daylight Time, Jill Klees is holding her monthly career workshop. This time, she’ll be teaching us all about LinkedIn as a Job Search Tool. Jill will give us tips on how to market ourselves, increase our networking connections, and be findable for future employers.

If you want to give yourself a LinkedIn refresher or get a head start on updating your profile, the Career Development site has LinkedIn Information and a collection of tutorials and resources to get you started. Last year, I put together a list of LinkedIn groups to join.

Even if you’re pretty confident in your LinkedIn presence, I still recommend that you attend Jill’s workshop. They’re always interactive, so it’s a great opportunity to ask your friendly career expert questions. I hope to see you there!
