Second Saturday is a program exclusively for members of The CT Groups
 
Focus on LinkedIn
 
 

 
Seven Reasons Why Don't Need a LinkedIn Profile or this Meeting 
  1. I am already well known ... my Profile with picture is posted in all US Post Offices
  2. For $20 this dude sold me next month's winning Power Ball lottery ticket
  3. I am currently in the US Marshall's Witness Protection Office with a new identity
  4. For only $100 I just won the South Nigerian World Lottery -- $80,000,000!
  5. The State now pays all my expenses: 8 consecutive Life Sentences
  6. My cell phone calls to Aliens have been answered!  I'm beaming up April 1, 2016
  7. If someone really wants me for a job let them find me ... they get paid to do that
  
 For the rest of us ... having a quality Resume and LinkedIn Profiles are requirements.

For this session we will focus on:
  1. Why a quality Resume and a LinkedIn Profile are essential
  2. Checking out your potential competitors
  3. Finding potential company networking contacts in seconds
  4. Common mistakes or lost opportunities seen on Profiles & how to fix them
  5. Questions as time permits

TIPS FOR THIS SESSION:
  1. LinkedIn is available for FREE - you do not need to pay anything to LinkedIn to use LinkedIn.
    There are optional service levels which carry an annual charge; you can use LinkedIn very effectively without paying one cent.  One member has been on LinkedIn since February 2003 and never sent LinkedIn any money for any reason and has been recruited from their Profile
    multiple times.

  2. Review the free information from LinkedIn's Help Center.
    You DO NOT have to be a LinkedIn member to use LinkedIn's Help Center.
    This is one of the best self service help pages from any company on the Internet:
    https://help.linkedin.com/app/home
    The sections "Building Your Identity" and "Getting Started" should be reviewed.
    Other sections can be reviewed after you get a good basic Profile created.
    To be a sprinter you first must know now to run which first requires knowing how to walk.

  3. If you do not have a Profile, get one started using your Resume as your initial content.
    Go to
    http://linkedin.com   Establishing a LinkedIn Account takes less than 10 minutes.  You will need to decide what e-mail address and password you want to protect your Profile with.  Other information to establish a minimal Profile is information you already know: your name, your profession, what city or area to you live in, etc.  This information can be changed at any time later.

    You cannot destroy, damage or crash LinkedIn or the Internet.  So relax, discover, have fun!
