Description
LinkedIn is now used by more than 200 million people worldwide. It is widely seen as THE social media platform for professionals. Many organizations have embraced it as a talent sourcing tool. However, it has potential for HR professionals well beyond its use in recruitment. So, are you getting the most out of it?

There used to be some debate as to whether or not LinkedIn was truly a social media – because social media implied engagement and discussion and the opportunities for this were quite limited in LinkedIn. However, in recent months, LinkedIn has invested a lot in finding ways to increase engagement within the LinkedIn platform and get people to spend more time there.

In this session, I will cover the recent changes in LinkedIn and show how they offer many ways to help you realise your professional goals. You will get useful tips in a number of areas including:

•       optimising your profile
•       making it easier for people to find you
•       building your credibility
•       expanding your networks by actively participating in the LinkedIn community

Are you worried that getting more out of LinkedIn might eat up too much of your limited time? I’ll also show you some ways to manage your time there so it doesn’t feel overwhelming.

If there’s time, we will also talk about how LinkedIn could be impacting your entire organisation and what you can do to support your colleagues.

If there are particular areas you would like me to cover in this session, please contact me ahead of time and I will do my best to incorporate your questions into this session.

Who Should Participate
Anyone interested in seeing how LinkedIn can help them with their personal and professional goals.
What You Will Learn
This session will help you get more out of LinkedIn, focusing on:
    How to make use of the LinkedIn Home page
  1. How to improve your profile

Recommended Resources

"When on a webinar speaker cannot take repeatedly take long pauses of silence because people are not sure if their connection was lost or not. Presentation would have been more helpful if she got more specific on how to do certain things rather than just pointing to page where settings can be changed. Overall the info was pretty generic rather than about ""optiimizing""" 3 / 5
