Thursday, June 11, 2015

Did you know that there are more than 350 million individual profiles on LinkedIn?

What was once a simple forum to store an online resume has now grown to become the largest and most important business networking tool in the world.

Leveraging LinkedIn, users can seek out a variety of useful opportunities. Free professional webinars, software betas and other invitations are available on to help professionals keep abreast of new technology and information systems. LinkedIn Groups provide an opportunity to connect with other professionals in your niche career or market, and discussions in LinkedIn Groups offer insights and an opportunity to network.

To benefit from participating in global business networks, the first step is to ensure that your LinkedIn profile is optimized and reflective of your work experience, accomplishments and professional portfolio. For instance, did you know that simply adding a quality headshot on your LinkedIn profile can increase views by more than eleven times the normal traffic to your personal page?

Learn how to engage on LinkedIn like a social media expert and explore the networking opportunities available on the fast growing online business community. The seminar will provide coaching and training you can immediately use to further your exposure and connections on LinkedIn. Attendees are asked to bring their laptop, smartphone or tablet to edit their profile during the training session.

Tickets are $10 and cover the cost of dinner. Donations are also accepted for the Lake Forest Graduate School of Management General Scholarship Fund. Space is limited! Register before Monday, June 15.
