You cannot conduct a successful job search these days without knowing how to use LinkedIn effectively! It’s not enough to post your resume on the Internet and wait for a response.   Find out how to:

  •  Learn to use technological tools to attain your professional goals and cultivate relationships to enhance your job search
  • Learn to grab the attention of the hiring manager
  •  Identify which tools to select, how to apply them, and what to say

In this interactive workshop, you will learn the nuanced components of effective networking for many aspects of business, not just for the purpose of looking for a job.
