Topic summary: Will this webinar teach you the skills to become a mega-millionaire yacht owner? Probably not. But it will give you the tools you need to leverage LinkedIn to its full potential for networking and staying visible in the Ag. field. This webinar will cover both technical aspects of setting up and “fleshing out” your profile, as well as how to use your content and connections to build your network. This is a useful skill for everyone, but will be particularly valuable for those entering the job market.
