LinkedIn - How you can build and leverage your network

LinkedIn - How you can build and leverage your network

LinkedIn is a Rolodex on steroids. LinkedIn does not only help you manage your connections and networks, you can also use it as a powerful learning tool. A LinkedIn network will stay current and travel with you throughout your journeys. As a network center piece, you can use LinkedIn in times of need as well as help others when they need it.

LinkedIn is a social network website that enables people to build and manage (mostly) business connections in order to discover jobs, ventures, new clients, etc. Unlike other social networking sites, its focus is business rather than social or entertainment. We will discuss how to make this work for you.

During this Webinar, see how you can build your network.
