LinkedIn has over 690 million users worldwide and welcomes a new member every two seconds. The best time for thought leadership postings on LinkedIn to create engagement is Tuesdays between 10-11 a.m. and the best times for shares is 10 a.m., 1 p.m., and 2 p.m. 94% of recruiters are using LinkedIn to find job candidates and they spend an average of 6 seconds looking at either a resume or a LinkedIn profile.
With statistics like these, how can you define your value proposition, optimize your LinkedIn profile, and leverage your competitive edge for career transition or career management?
This informative workshop will delve into a research-based philosophy and strategies to create a LinkedIn profile that is geared toward viewers with average attention spans of about 7 seconds.

You’ll discover tips, tricks, and best practices to more strategically format your LinkedIn profile, optimize your use of keywords, and differentiate your personal brand.
By attending this session, you’ll learn:
Where in your profile to effectively incorporate keywords, including those from new job descriptions
How to clearly brand yourself
How to develop your “secret sauce” to stand out
How to strategically format and streamline your profile
When, where, and why you need to engage in thought leadership
