Yes, it’s true - you really do need a LinkedIn profile! Create real connections, build your network, land a new job and become a believer.

About this Event

Let's be honest. You probably have a LinkedIn profile, but don't know what to do with it. Or maybe you never signed up because you haven't seen the value.

Now more than ever, LinkedIn is a resource that can help you expand your network and create real connections in a world where we currently cannot in-person.

Whether you’re a complete beginner to the world of LinkedIn, or wanting to move from being a passive to active user - learn why and how you can benefit from it.

This special two-hour workshop includes a live streamed webinar, followed by an optional work session where you can immediately start implementing those tips with educators and mentors to assist and answer your questions.

November 23rd Schedule:

5 - 6 p.m. PST - Live Webinar - Learn from LinkedIn pro Jennifer Grant of Jennifer Grant International, who will use her expertise to guide you through how to unleash the potential of your profile.

6 - 7 p.m. PST - Work Session - Time to make that profile magic! Our educators and mentors will be available virtually and in-person to help and answer any questions.

You will learn:

  • What LinkedIn is and why you should care about it
  • How Using LinkedIn can provide value to your career
  • First steps to get started
  • How to create a positive first impression on your profile
  • What to include on your profile if you are a student or recent grad
