Having a LinkedIn profile is a necessary tool if you want to be recognized as a professional in today's market. If you are changing careers, crafting your story on LinkedIn is even more essential.

While resumes are not yet dead, they do come with a 1-2 page limitation and are static by comparison with a LinkedIn profile, which is dynamic and designed to showcase the best of you (your brand) within a platform that is keyword searchable and non-linear. 

Beyond the benefits of a sophisticated free online profile, LinkedIn enables you to build and leverage a network of connections, identify collaborations or partnerships, request recommendations, and generally showcase your work and skills on a multimedia platform. Think of it as your own professional website that can be customized as your career or experiences evolve.

Put as much attention and care as you have put into a traditional resume into your LinkedIn profile. It will likely be seen by more people and has the potential for better results.

In this workshop, I'll show you how to create a basic, yet thorough, profile that tells your compelling professional story (your brand) and shows hiring managers and connections that you are worth talking to. I'll share which elements of your profile you need to invest time in now, and which one's you can continue to develop over time.

After this workshop, you’ll have the tools to show off your LinkedIn profile with pride and get results on your career change.
