Thursday, 21 February 2013 from 18:30 to 19:45 (GMT)
This event is over but the recording and podcast are available for download from Sensible Media's download store.
Jorgen Sundberg, Founder and Director, LinkHumans (blogger at The Undercover Recruiter) explains how you can best manage your Linkedin profile to find and be found by potential recruiters. This webinar is co-produced by INSEAD Alumni Career Service and Sensible Media Ltd.
LinkedIn has become the dominant professional network in Europe and North America and for many sectors is becoming integral to recruitment. Profile pages have become as important as CVs.
For management roles up to and including the boardroom, an ill-thought-out online profile can be as damaging as bad CV. This webinar aims to equip professionals with the understanding they need about LinkedIn and how recruiters use it to present themselves effective.
The webinar covers:
- The growing social media recruitment model and what it means for both active and passive candidates
- How recruiters search for and source candidates
- How LinkedIn’s engine processes and prioritises search results
- How your profile is read and where you should focus most
- What a good profile looks like
We will also look at Linkedin etiquette and strategy and explore some powerful but less well know features of the system:
- Which activities best distinguish your profile
- Connecting do's and don'ts
- How best to approach potential employers
- Targeting and researching companies using LinkedIn
All webinar attendees are invited to fill in the event pre-survey. We will conduct a Linkedin SEO review of up to three profiles during the webinar. If you would like to volunteer for an SEO review please indicate this in the pre-event survey.
