Boost Your Confidence, Serve Your Clients"

Friday, February 21, 2014 • 1 p.m. Eastern

Writing LinkedIn profiles has become a must-have skill for every résumé writer. If you want to serve your clients well--which we all do!--it is essential to understand best practices and potential pitfalls as you approach writing each client’s profile. Some of the topics Brenda will cover include:

  • What’s the ONE most important thing to keep in mind when writing a LinkedIn profile?
  • How should I approach writing a profile for a “stealth” job seeker?
  • How do I decide what keywords to put in the headline?
  • Is there a way to use all 2,000 characters in the summary without putting the reader to sleep?
  • Do I write the summary in the 1st person or 3rd person?

Brenda will review all of these topics and more -- complete with sample headlines and summaries to make the knowledge practical and concrete. If you write LinkedIn profiles for your clients, you will gain confidence and the ability to build your LinkedIn profile practice!
