Our Achieving Success with LinkedIn workshop is tomorrow at 7PM at one of our favorite places, McAnns, at 3 West 46th Street at 7PM. We’ll have the upstairs lounge to ourselves. Appetizers and networking included.
Hundreds of people received new professional opportunities today via LinkedIn. If you were not one of them, you should be attending this workshop.
Please RSVP in advance on Eventbrite. Friends of The Opportunities Project can use discount code oppsfriend to get 25% off the ticket price and attend for $15.
Here are also three recent articles and blog posts on using LinkedIn that I liked.
1. 4 Essentials for Reaching Out to Strangers on LinkedIn on Careerealism. In the last week, I’ve had conversations with three clients on this very topic. I think this article makes something abstract seem specific and easy and is a great read for that reason.
2. LinkedIn is Changing. Are You Keeping Up? on the Recruiting Unblog. As I’ve blogged before, I get nutty when articles don’t frame LinkedIn as a database and focus on it as a personal marketing tool. This blog post does a great job reinforcing that the point of using LinkedIn is to be found. If you’re not doing what you need to do that, fix it or get off.
3. Creating a Striking Social Media Profile in The Creative Group eZine featuring LinkedIn Trainer and expert Tracy Brisson… OK, this is a complete shameless plug for my interview for this publication. :) It has great advice if I do say so myself.
I also critiqued a job seeker’s LinkedIn profile on the Recruiting Animal’s Blog Talk Radio Show. The job seeker didn’t like my advice- or the feedback from the other recruiters who were agreeing with me. That is the topic for another blog post.
See you on Tuesday!
