LinkedIn Webinars

This webinar includes over 15 sessions on using LinkedIn designed to help you in your job search.  Most sessions are about six minutes long, but I spend 25 minutes evaluating five different LinkedIn Profiles.

As you go through this webinar you’ll understand what each section of LinkedIn is – how to use it, why to use it, what is important, etc.

This barely fit on one DVD, so is not available for download (it’s over 3GB). It plays on a PC, Mac and DVD player.  Here are the chapters/sections:

  1. Profile Review Part I – Above the Fold – I critique the top part of five LinkedIn Profiles, and make suggestions on how they can make them stronger, and increase the chances of being found in search results.
  2. Profile Review Part II – Below the Fold – I critique the rest of the five LinkedIn Profiles, specifically the stuff that you see when you scroll down (education, work history, etc.)
  3. Applications – To wrap up the “LinkedIn Profile” stuff, I had to talk about the new “LinkedIn Applications,” and what I suggest you do as a professional.
  4. Account and Settings – It’s a big menu page, but what do you need to worry about? We’ll go over some of the things I recommend you pay attention to.
  5. Getting and Giving Recommendations – How to get and give LinkedIn Recommendations.
  6. Answers – Asking Questions – Ask questions in LinkedIn as a part of your networking and personal branding strategy.  Here’s how.
  7. Answers – Answering Questions – Not ready to commit to asking questions regularly?  Answering questions is also very powerful, and doesn’t come with any regular commitment.
  8. Searching – If you aren’t using advanced search, you are missing a big part of LinkedIn.  There are a few simple tricks that can take you a long ways in LinkedIn.
  9. Browsing Connections – Your first degree connections might have some golden contacts for you – here’s one way of finding people you need to network your way into.
  10. Exporting Connections – Exporting your contacts is one of the four things I talk about in my seminar.  Here’s why and how.
  11. Growing Your Network – I had 5 first degree contacts when I first got started, and that was a huge mistake.  Instead of saying “get thousands,” we say “get the right connections, and here’s what that means!”
  12. Groups – Groups for the job search?  Absolutely, and strategically!  We talk about how to find Groups and what to do once you are a member.
  13. Staying Current – I’m on LinkedIn — Now What Blog – Some info on how to keep up with current LinkedIn information, as well as communicate with others regarding issues we blog about.
  14. Company Pages – The Company feature in LinkedIn is amazing… AMAZING.  I think it’s the second best thing they’ve done, next to Answers, for a user like me.  Eventually it could eclipse the value of Answers… !
