Resources and highlights from seminar on how to use LinkedIn for career success

A big thank you to everyone who came out to last week’s LinkedIn workshop featuring Robb Pardee, one of the social network’s recommended experts. The two sessions were packed with attendees who asked many great questions about leveraging LinkedIn for career success.

One of the resources Robb shared was a career checklist for leveraging LinkedIn for your job search. He posted the checklist to his website to help attendees keep moving forward on using LinkedIn effectively, so be sure to drop by and download it there if you missed the seminar or left your copy on your chair.

Robb also covered the following:
  • The Value of LinkedIn: why you should use it and what makes it the go-to online platform for professional networking
  • Personal Branding: designing your profile, building credibility, expanding your network, and communicating to your network
  • Job Search: developing your strategy, searching job postings on LinkedIn, identifying potential employers through company search, and joining groups
  • Managing LinkedIn: how to filter all the information through home page settings, LinkedIn tools, RSS feeds, email updates, and third party applications
Stay tuned for more highlights from the workshop. We’ll have a video interview with Robb about the top tips for using LinkedIn to accelerate your career, a video of the full seminar, and additional resources for attendees as well as anyone who missed it!
