PRESENTATION DESCRIPTION

Did you know …

  • LinkedIn has over 722+ 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 towards viewers with average attention spans of about 7 seconds. You’ll get insights into the role of cognitive neuroscience and how the evolution of the “digital brain” is central to what and how people skim online content. 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
  • 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
