LinkedIn & Networking: Your Reputation Precedes You
#WESTnetworking

 

With increasing recruitment and professional networking activity online, we are often not aware when we make our first impression on someone new. For this reason, it is critical to be engaged and well-connected - to optimize our online presence and to make the most of the tools available. In this workshop, we will focus on effective utilization of LinkedIn, as well as review how marketing principles like search engine optimization (SEO) and brand differentiation apply to job seekers, influencers, and even passive industry professionals. Discussion topics will include tips for creating a strong online presence & LinkedIn profile, as well as your Google results, and the strategy around consistency in networking - both online and in-person.
