Is your job search landing flat?

LinkedIn can SAVE your Job Search and Allow YOU to SOAR

Friday, September 20 beginning at 9:30 AM

at the Jobs Ministry at St. Thomas the Apostle

The resume has been retired as ineffective.  In today’s high skies of employment, LinkedIn is THE premier parachute available.

  • If you don’t have a strong, marketing oriented profile posted on LinkedIn, you’re jumping without the shoot. 

  • If you don’t know how to USE LinkedIn effectively to network you’re maybe on the boat by riding in steerage.

  • ·f you don’t know how to establish yourself as a subject matter expert on LinkedIn, you’re landing flat.

Even since Richard Bolles first published What Color is Your Parachute in 1970, the parachute has been used as a metaphor for the group of skills that should fill the toolbox of every serious job seeker.  That first edition didn’t include LinkedIn, but it has been added in the subsequent updates because today, if you don’t use LinkedIn effectively, you might as well not have a parachute.

Join us for this practical, interactive presentation that will disclose information and give you actionable “To-Do” items that will immediately SAVE your job search.

  • Learn why most LinkedIn profiles are riddles with holes and just not sound from a marketing perspective.

  • ·Virtual networking is tougher even that F2F networking.  Learn how to do it so that it really works.

  • Invite the LinkedIn community to see you as the “go to” person in your field.  The person everyone wants to hire.

Richard Bolles said it best, “to adapt to the Internet age find the person with the authority to hire you."
