This workshop will go beyond the basics and straight to the strategy of making LinkedIn work for you as a UX professional

About this event

LinkedIn is much more than a job search board, profile, and social media feed. It’s an essential tool for UX professionals who want to level up their professional development and create their own career opportunities.

It’s the premier professional networking platform where people at any point in their career journey can share their ideas with the world, connect with peers, and establish a professional reputation.

The biggest challenge is figuring out what to talk about, how to say it, who your audience is, and how to bring this all together into an intentional practice that serves both you and the UX community.

In this 2-hour interactive workshop, UX Career Strategist & Coach Amy Santee will discuss the why, what, and how of engaging on LinkedIn with valuable, authentic, and original content. We’ll go beyond the basics and straight to the strategy of using this platform to establish and nurture meaningful relationships, build professional credibility, support our peers, attract opportunities, and impact the rapidly evolving practice of UX.

You will learn how to:

  • Build your community of friends, colleagues, and supporters
  • Design and curate your LinkedIn experience
  • Implement principles for effective engagement
  • Contribute to the conversation by commenting and posting
  • Identify what makes content worth sharing
  • Gain confidence by taking baby steps and experimenting
  • Go from lurker to content creator with an audience
  • Take advantage of the LinkedIn algorithm to disperse your great ideas

What you’ll walk away with:

  • Specific ideas for content that speaks to your unique perspective, resonates with your audience, and maps to your professional goals
  • Confidence to get started right away
  • Take-home resources
  • New friends and colleagues to carry on the conversation!
