About this event

How often do you work on your personal brand?  Many of us avoid it because it makes us uncomfortable or we feel egotistical for bragging. However, when we apply for jobs or meet new contacts, they often check out our profiles, and if they are not up to date or tell our professional story, we are missing out. LinkedIn is the place to do this, to build our brand and tell our professional story.  Sharing our successes, awards, and even educational achievements is important. This workshop will offer an overview of LinkedIn and how to use it to share your story and build an active and authentic community. 

If you want more, Candice Zakariya will share more information about additional courses and coaching opportunities.
