    Jumpstart Your Career with LinkedIn, Part 1
    Join the MCAA for a two part series this April and learn how to make the most of online networking platform LinkedIn in a fun and interactive forum. An informal wine and cheese reception will follow each program.

    LinkedIn is now an essential tool for job-seekers and career-advancers: Those who are well versed are reaching their career goals more quickly. But even regular LinkedIn users are often not aware of advanced, easily accessible features and strategies that will improve their success with this tool. Robert Hellmann, career coach at Hellmann Career Consulting and author of Your Social Media Job Search, will go beyond the basics in two LinkedIn workshops to teach you how to boost your career with LinkedIn. You are encouraged to bring your laptops to both sessions to follow along closely and try out some of the things Rob is suggesting in this interactive workshop.

    Part 1: Getting Set Up for Success
    Rob will show you how to establish a strong presence on LinkedIn so that you can get the most out of this career tool. In particular, he will cover: how to be “found” on LinkedIn by people looking to hire for your skills; the "right" way to build and leverage your LinkedIn network; creating a LinkedIn Profile that will enhance your marketability; Profiles vs. Resumes; LinkedIn Groups–which to join, and how to find the “gems;” LinkedIn Recommendations—how to get good ones and how “Endorsements” differ; and the four places in your Profile where “keywords” are most essential.

    Join us for part 1, part 2 or both sessions, all GSAS Master's Alumni are welcome to attend this great free event series.
