"LinkedIn for the Intermediate or Hardcore"
Facilitator: Dr. Thomas J. Denham - "Dr. Tom"
Every 12 days, 1 million people join LinkedIn. It is your electronic resume, rolodex and your Club of Professionals. LinkedIn can help you learn about and reach out to clients, partners and employers. You may be saying to yourself, “I have LinkedIn, but I don’t really do much with it.” LI is an enormously powerful tool for establishing your brand, enhancing your visibility, building credibility and managing your career. Having a static and dull profile is not the online reputation you want to project. If you are not leveraging LI, it's guaranteed your competition is. This seminar will demonstrate the features of LI and how to use it as your professional Internet image. You will go beyond the basics and learn more features of LI. If you are serious about building your business, you must be serious about LinkedIn!!!
