About this event

Are you ready to take your Linkedin network to the next level? Join our 14 Day Linkedin Writing Cohort. This challenge, hosted by Candice Zakariya will kick off with a live event and then offer: 

  • Include daily prompts.  Candice will guide you with daily writing prompts and on-demand videos to keep you motivated.
  • Join a private community.  Get inspiration, feedback and a jumpstart network by joining a private cohort of fellow software developers, designers and product managers on the same journey. 
  • Hands-on Learning. Apply what you learn by crafting engaging Linkedin posts with Candice's E.P.I.C. content framework.
  • Personal feedback.  You'll receive a 1-to-1 coaching call where you will receive constructive feedback to refine you content throughout the two weeks.

By the end of the Challenge your Linkedin profile will be a magnet for career opportunities with former students sharing they received DMs and direct outreach from recruiters just days after the challenge.
