LinkedIn is THE social media site where today’s professionals electronically post their career accomplishments, passions and share their expertise. LinkedIn is also the primary vehicle where recruiters and potential hiring decision makers first learn about and begin the evaluation of job seekers. If making a positive first impression is important, a strategically crafted LinkedIn profile is the most effective way to make this happen.
Joseph’s People President Ernie Russom will present an informative and interactive session where he will share strategies, tricks-of-the-trade and must haves which will allow your LinkedIn profile to win you notice and recognition to stand out from the crowd of job seekers.
Ernie is the Executive Director of the highly successful retained and dedicated executive search firm, The Westview Associates.
