Summary: LinkedIn has had a major and permanent impact on how job seekers find new positions. And, although the resume is still an essential component in every job seeker’s toolkit, LinkedIn is now just as vital. Recruiters and hiring managers will tell you that if you’re not on LinkedIn, you don’t exist.
In response to today’s demand, resume writers write LinkedIn profiles for almost all of their clients … career coaches and counselors provide guidance on how to write them …. college and university career center professionals guide their students through the writing process. That’s what this program is going to teach you—how to write and format LinkedIn profiles that are attention-getting, rich in content, powerfully written, and created to meet the unique keyword algorithms essential to being found.
Wendy Enelow and Louise Kursmark have been leaders in the field of resume writing for decades and in writing LinkedIn profiles for 15+ years. They know what works in LinkedIn and they know how and why, critical information that they’ll share with you during this webinar. Their very best advice … Don’t shortchange your clients (or yourself) with a profile that is simply a copy-and-paste of a resume. LinkedIn is different and much more than that, and we’ll show you how to create profiles that stand out to give your clients a strong competitive edge.
