How Your ACTIVITY and CONTENT on LinkedIn Will Get You Found

More and more job hunters have better and better profiles on LinkedIn. So as a job hunter, how do you distinguish yourself so that employers find YOU?

Job Search Coach Joanne Meehl is a prolific writer on careers and other topics, and will share her secrets AND those of her Google and marketing gurus, who have taught her how using content on LinkedIn and elsewhere helps you get found — and now she’ll be sharing this with you. You’ll be hearing new ideas and tips that you can use to elevate your status in the eyes of employers AND peers.

Here are some takeaways from this session:

  • Learn about the Hierarchy of Content (and Activity) that attracts Google AND hiring managers to your LinkedIn profile
  • Learn about topics that you can write about, and how you can write even if you’re NOT a “writer”
  • Learn do’s and dont’s about using your content
  • Learn what other places will take your content, ideas and articles
  • See examples of all of the above, including winning profiles

In short, don’t just “park” online — instead, DRIVE IT so that you get found! — Joanne Meehl
