Have you been meaning to set up a professional profile on LinkedIn, but aren’t sure where to start, why it’s important, or what kind of information to share? Join the Chamber of Central Mass South, 8:00am on Tuesday, April 26th at Bay Path University for an informative, hands-on seminar on the Basics of LinkedIn.
LinkedIn is an extremely fast growing social media network with over 410 million active users, and focuses on highlighting a person’s professional accomplishments, work experience, and volunteering accomplishments. This seminar, presented by Venly fellow and social media expert Emily MacWilliams, will cover the purpose of LinkedIn, help attendees create a winning LinkedIn Profile, and teach users how to successfully interact with others on LinkedIn. This seminar will cover LinkedIn Facts & Stats, and move on to teach attendees how to Build a Public Profile and Optimize Work, Education and Volunteering Experience. The hour-long session will also offer a Practical on Connecting with others, an overview of the Skill Endorsement feature, and a brief summary on requesting and giving Recommendations.
