Unlock the potential of LinkedIn to reach your next career opportunity!
ABOUT THIS EVENT
LinkedIn is more than just another social network—it’s the single most powerful online tool for job seekers. In fact, 87 percent of recruiters report using LinkedIn to find and vet candidates for their companies. But navigating the platform can be complicated, with its unspoken rules and etiquette, and standing out among millions of candidates requires some insider knowledge.
Join the Neurodiversity in the Workplace team, fellow neurodivergent job seekers, and inclusive employers for actionable tips to help you make the most of LinkedIn.
This webinar is your in-depth guide to leveraging LinkedIn as a job seeker. Topics will include:
> Profile creation and the role of each component, from headline and summary to experience and endorsements
> Best practices for networking, including direct messaging, evaluating which connections to make, and how to engage your contacts in your job search
> Search algorithms and optimization to increase your visibility and opportunity to connect to recruiters
You’ll hear from a panel of experts including company recruiters, neurodiversity hiring program managers, and neurodivergent employees. They will share their first-hand experiences, ideas, and strategies on how to use the power of LinkedIn to launch your career or land your next job.
