- LinkedIn 2 PM: Advanced Users Workshop in CT
- Jul. 23. 2012 02:30 PM - 05:00 PM
- Wesleyan University - Middletown
- Professional Development Seminar
Note: You will need a laptop computer for this session.
This “advanced users” workshop is designed for the avid LinkedIn user, both personally and professionally. We'll assume you are already doing or teaching the following: maintaining a solid profile, summary, and specialties; posting updates and having conversations in groups; conducting informational interviews by contacting people through groups; and researching companies. (Those topics will not be addressed in this workshop; it’ll be assumed you have that knowledge, or have attended LinkedIn 1.)
What we will talk about will be the more recent add-ons, tools, and apps, as well as some new ways of using what has always been there. Some example topics include advanced company research, the new alumni site, using signal, ways to categorize and download contacts, adding or editing tags, tapping new applications (including cool new ones that you can’t find directly on LinkedIn) and more. You'll be given a demo of these new tools and sections, and then you’ll have the time to test them out and discuss their potential in small groups or pairs.
Join us for a deeper exploration and great conversations about the latest LinkedIn tools and how we and our clients can best use them. Expect a fun, engaging and hands-on session where even LinkedIn experts should gain new insights while collaborating with fellow career counseling colleagues.
