Description

This course is designed to help you get to the next level of using LinkedIn. It’s packed with lessons that run from basic to advanced, and there is something for everyone in here.

The course is broken down into 3 sections, Build, Attract and Engage. “Build” revisits your profile with ideas about how to improve it based on your specific goals. “Attract” improves your ability to draw attention to your profile and measure the results of that attention. And “Engage” improves the way you proactively use the platform for your networking and job search efforts.

By the end of this course,

  • You will have improved your ability to find your next opportunity.

  • You will have refreshed your thinking about how to effectively use LinkedIn,

  • And hopefully you will feel motivated to get back out there and find what you are looking for!

Here’s a little quiz: Do you know how to see your update history? Do you know how to make your own posts go viral? You have probably noticed that your home page shows new stories, promotions and motivational quotes, but do you know how to get your feed to show updates about your network instead?

If you answered “no” to any one of these questions, then this course is for you! In it, we reveal hacks, tips and some basic ideas about how to enhance the way you use LinkedIn. Think of this course as a sort of “best of” reel that you can absorb one lesson at a time.

For example, are you already blogging on the LinkedIn platform? If so, skip that section and move on to “how to get 15 free InMails.” Do you know how to get 15 free InMails already? Skip to “Are premium packages worth it?” and so on...

Rather than simply like or comment on someone else's post, why not try starting a thread on your own? It's easy to do with a short update, photo or link to another site or article. This lesson walks you through it.

How to post an update on your homepage
03:21

Do you enjoy writing? If so, then LinkedIn blogging platform may be a great outlet for you. Join some of the most well-known business leaders by contributing to the site and reach more people with richer content than you would with a simple update.

Writing articles or blogging
01:52

Have you ever noticed that the most viewed updates often have nothing to do with business or updating one's status? You can create a viral post yourself, but be careful what you wish for, not all posts are created equal.

How to make your posts go viral
02:05

If you've ever wondered where a previous update or post went, then this hack is for you! Just like facebook, you can see a lit of your updates, it's just hidden a bit more.

Have you ever heard that most jobs get filled before they are even advertised? Many times, company pages allow you to see open positions before they are advertised broadly. They also provide critical intelligence that you need before any interview. 

What are company pages
03:53

Company pages often go overlooked as a resource for finding open, but unadvertised jobs. Following companies puts useful information in your home feed about open positions as well as news updates that provide the basis for outreach to networking contacts at those companies.

I have heard that checking out who has viewed your profile is the most popular feature on LinkedIn. If you are not getting these emails and are curious, here is how you can find out. You could get sucked into a premium package though, so watch out!

This lecture offers tips on how to get others to endorse you.  Hint: It has to do with the law of reciprocity. 

How to get endorsements
01:51

Recommendations are longer and not as easy to get as endorsements, but they can be valuable. You will want to have at least a few longer form recommendations on your profile and this is how you can get them.

Getting recommendations

A proactive recruiting strategy requires identifying individuals that can provide you information, introductions and leads. One of the best ways to get the most from LinkedIn is to conduct targeted searches for specific individuals that you can approach. In this lecture we look at the elements that make up a successful people search. It includes a peek at LinkedIn Recruiter, the corporate tool that many recruiters use to identify prospective candidates.

Advanced people search 1 - Free Version
11:26

Most job seekers have no idea that executive recruiters use a corporate version of the system called LinkedIn Recruiter. Similar to the premium, advanced search function, Recruiter allows you more variables and the ability to dig deeper into the site. This lecture will be particularly helpful if you have a premium account.
