Tap into the Social Media Giant That Recruiters, Managers, and HR Departments Use Every Day
Since 2007, I have been an avid user of LinkedIn, helping job seekers tap into this vital website and apply strategies to connect with managers, recruiters, and industry leaders. As a former Human Resources Recruiter, I know what employers look for – and how to work within the unspoken rules while fully utilizing effective, tactical networking tools like LinkedIn to gain access to the real decision makers.
This course is perfect for everyone, from beginners to skilled LinkedIn users. In particular, I discuss not just the “how to” with LinkedIn, but also the important strategies of “why” that makes an effective job search.
Using a mix of lectures, guided screen shots, quizzes, and written content, you will learn everything from the basics to advanced tactics for using LinkedIn to gain a new job. With over 2.5 hours of video content, the entire course is outlined in detail so you can quickly jump to specific lectures to answer your questions. Plus, as LinkedIn rolls out new advancements, I will continue to update the course so you always have the most up-to-date content on LinkedIn.
At the end of this course, you will be able to make meaningful connections while you build your online reputation and increase your number of Profile views. And of course, you will be able to make the most of every job posting you see and find the hidden jobs on LinkedIn.
Stop the insanity of doing the same ineffective strategies over and over while expecting different results. Learn how to get a job on LinkedIn without going crazy!
