LinkedIn + Twitter + Hiring Managers = Secret to Helping Job Seekers

Register Now

As career professionals, we know that LinkedIn and Twitter can be excellent tools for every job seeker and working person.  Unfortunately, most of what is powerful about LinkedIn and Twitter is not obvious to the causal user.  Setting up a profile is not enough.  Job seekers need to use social networking sites to expand their network and increase their chances of finding the next position that fits their skills and expertise. 

During this hands-on workshop, Jennifer Radke will teach you how to search and engage with hiring managers and industry experts using two powerful tools: LinkedIn and Twitter. These skills will translate into your own professional life as well as techniques you can coach your clients and students to use.

You will

– Learn how to narrow your search in each platform

– Determine keywords that make the biggest impact

– Identify best practices to initiate a conversation 

– Discover the value of contributing to online discussions

Join us as we dive into the best ways to find those hiring managers!
