Blackpool & Fylde ICT Cluster Meeting

Wednesday 29th June 2011

17:30 - 20:00

#ictlancs

 

The focus of this event is LinkedIn and its utility as a social networking tool. LinkedIn is far more than just a means of keeping in touch with people. These days, in business it seems that everyone has a LinkedIn profile and this makes it a very powerful recruiting tool as well as the perfect place to make others aware that you are looking for a new job opportunity. Sales and marketing professionals are using LinkedIn to engage with current and target customers and research organisations are also finding LinkedIn a valuable source of information and data. Social networking is radically changing the way we communicate in many aspects of our lives and this is especially true in the business world. Understanding and embracing online networking has become an essential skill for professionals from all sectors.
