LinkedIn Search Optimization (Bellevue, WA)
Monday, May 13, 2013 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM (PDT)
While there are many books written and classes taught on LinkedIn, most are focused on the basics of the site, how to build your profile, import your contacts, etc. Would you like to cut through the clutter, get the most out of the site with the least amount of effort?
With over 200+ million professionals on LinkedIn the ability to connect to almost anyone is now in your hands.
We will discuss:
- LinkedIn's updated new features and changes
- How to research companies and their respective decision makers
- Who is your competition and what changes can you make to become more marketable
- What is the best way to reach out to people without getting marked as "spam"s
Typical attendees are middle to late career professionals-in-transition, executives and self-employed entrepreneurs attracted to cutting edge job search strategies. Their professions are in a wide range such as law and accounting, health care, software engineering, manufacturing, sales and marketing, writing, operations, project management, and general management.
Since May 2009, ProLango has trained more than 10,000 professionals with cutting-edge job search strategies. We are the only local outplacement and career-transition company known for continually learning and sharing strategies that work as opposed to the cookie-cutter career advice found elsewhere.
