This in-depth LinkedIn Boot Camp will focus on helping you learn what LinkedIn is and how to use it effectively. It will give you everything you need to get connected with your colleagues, clients or future employers. The goal of this boot camp is to take you beyond receiving requests to join LinkedIn and have you begin leveraging the power of LinkedIn. You’ll learn about its’ benefits and how to get started using them right away. Come learn in an interactive classroom setting with an instructor who is prepared to answer your questions. In this “hands-on environment” we will review LinkedIn’s features and discuss how to make them work for you. You will be setting up your LinkedIn account, so get ready to get connected! Part one starts off with you learning how to create your own unique profile. At the end of part two, you’ll leave with a branded personal profile that will start you on your way toward making the right connections that will help you build your business. This is a hands-on workshop and will be held in a computer lab, but you may bring your laptop.
