Make Your LinkedIn Profile Snap, Crackle and Pop!
March 27, 2017 6:30-8:00pm

How dynamic is your LinkedIn profile? Is your purpose to feature yourself for an active or passive job search, find new clients, hire new employees or something else? Let’s team up and figure it out together! We will discuss the following:
- Why is LinkedIn so important in general?
- Personal Branding and Messaging
- Visibility through Networking
Whatever your intentions, maintaining a memorable professional digital footprint is absolutely essential. Your LinkedIn profile should showcase your “Sizzle Factor!”
