LinkedIn is more than a digital resume. It’s a powerful networking tool that can help you tell your story, find and network with the right people and open doors to a world of opportunities. But few people use it the right way.
Join us for a discussion on the best strategies for getting the most out of LinkedIn. Kevin S. Ryan, an expert on LinkedIn and the use of social media for business and professional growth, will discuss ways to use your network to uncover new opportunities and get your foot in the door. This program is a must for people who are looking for work, who might be looking for work, or who just want to be more successful at what they do. You will leave with a better understanding of LinkedIn’s hidden gems and a roadmap for networking success.
Guests are welcome to both of these events.
