Course Description

With about 250 million members, Linkedin is a powerful networking platform that you can use to leverage your career, your brand or your business.


When I have reviewed numerous Linkedin profiles, here are questions related to problems I see:

  • Do you have a partially completed profile?
  • Has your Linkedin account been static (opened, but not really used)?
  • Did you essentially post your resume to your Linkedin profile?
  • Do you treat Linkedin like Facebook or Twitter?
  • Do your stats indicate that you are showing up in a low number of searches?
  • When you search for your keywords, does your profile up on page 1 or 2? Or not at all?
