We have reached capacity and are no longer taking new registrations.
LinkedIn is now the leading social networking site for business professionals and boasts a network of over 175 million users, including executives from all Fortune 500 companies. And, they recently acquired Slideshare and Rapportive, furthering their reach and scope. If you have not yet tapped into or fully harnessed the power of LinkedIn, then this is the session for you.
Ruben Quinones, Director of New Media at Path Interactive, returns to NYTECH for an in-depth discussion on how to use LinkedIn to build credibility and contacts outside of your organization. This session speaks to employers and marketers that want to leverage their internal talent to evangelize the company and its messaging.
Ruben will provide insights into the following areas:
- networking in the “Digital Age”
- how to tailor your profile for desired audiences
- how to optimize your profile to take advantage of Linkedin’s search algorithm
- screening and connecting with other users
- advantages and "best practices" of joining groups
- tapping the power of “Linkedin Answers”
- apps that will make your profile stand out and provide credibility
You will walk away from this session with a different perspective of LinkedIn and be fully aware of its potential and value to your career and business.
Doors open at 6:00PM for networking and discussion begins at 6:15PM.
