Building Your LinkedIn Profile

Years: 1,2,3


Your network is the most important tool for finding and securing new opportunities. LinkedIn is the platform that allows you to build and expand your network and the best bit is, it's in a format you recognise and are used to navigating. Getting added value from having a LinkedIn profile is not that straightforward and this workshop will focus on how you can have a LinkedIn profile that makes an impact for you.
