In March, the Takoma Park Job Seeker's Clinic will feature "Get LinkedIn!," a workshop focused on the perks of the networking website and some tips on how to use it. Social media is an integral part of the job search process in modern society, and LinkedIn can help you network, find jobs, and connect with employers past and present. Using LinkedIn has many advantages, including:
- staying connected with former colleagues, classmates, and friends in a professional way
- building an online profile and controlling your online presence
- learning more about companies you are interested in
- discovering opportunities through your network
Learn more about using this powerful networking tool to your advantage. For the latest tips on maximizing employer interest and creating your profile, visit LinkedIn's blog, which is full of relevant articles for job seekers.
To get started, join us at Takoma Park Library on Thursday, March 6, 1-2:30 p.m. We will first discuss the ins and outs of networking with LinkedIn, followed by time to create your LinkedIn profile. All are welcome. Bring a current resume and your questions.
Get LinkedIn and network your way to a job you love!
