LinkedIn is the world’s largest professional network with more than 467 million members in over 200 countries. It has fast become the tool of choice for a vast majority of employers and individuals seeking new workers and business opportunities.

With its rising prominence online, a free LinkedIn profile is like an online business card, resume and short sales pitch combined whilst also providing you with a platform to interact and network with your peers.

The first step to take in maximising LinkedIn is to build a strong personal brand – what does your online personal brand say about you? Kate will share tips and techniques on updating your profile to build a professional online identity that stands out from the masses and is optimised for search.

Here’s what we’re planning to cover during the event:

  • What LinkedIn is and why people use it
  • How to build a strong professional brand on LinkedIn
  • What areas of your profile you need to pay attention to create a search-friendly profile that is 100% complete
