LinkedIn has fast become one of the most popular social channels for business professionals. Every second, two new members join, and more than 259 million users in over 200 countries form the world’s largest professional network on the internet. Your firm and its attorneys are probably among the millions of users who’ve created profiles and made connections, but are you taking advantage of all that the channel has to offer? It’s sometimes hard to know for sure, as LinkedIn’s set of new features also seems to grow at an exponential rate.

It’s a good thing we’ve got Terry Stewart, Senior Relationship Manager at LinkedIn, to help us out! Join Terry for a session on maximizing the benefit and results you get from using LinkedIn to power your recruiting efforts. He shares best practices for creating Company and Careers pages, tips for improving individual profiles and other tools you can utilize to help the stream of quality candidates flow stronger, and your search for and engagement with these individuals more successful.
