Join guest presenter Liz King of Liz King Events for a fresh look at your LinkedIn profile. Whether looking for a new position or looking to share your work at your current position, LinkedIn is an important social network to master. And – in case you missed it – they’ve just done a total revamp of the profiles. You will likely need another check of your profile, even if you’ve given it some work in the past.

In this webinar, we will discuss tips and tricks for a killer profile that will share your personal brand and engage new connections. We will talk specifically about your headline, summary, how to use keywords and how your profile differs from a resume. In addition, we’ll show you how to search your entire network and find people you can start a meaningful connection with. We’ll also talk about groups and how to leverage them for branding.
