✨ Meeting virtually over Zoom
With our membership's professional development and growth in mind, we welcome Dr. Amanda Veri to our November Membership Meeting.
Join us as we learn tips and tricks for optimizing your LinkedIn profile to catch the eye of potential employers and recruiters. Learn helpful techniques for utilizing LinkedIn for career exploration, networking, and job searching!
We have heard so much about "The Great Resignation" as a lasting effect of the pandemic. With this in mind, we know that LinkedIn is a valuable resource that we as Volunteer Managers may not be fully utilizing. LinkedIn is the largest professional social media site in the world. A professionally written LinkedIn profile that reflects your work experience and personality can help open doors to opportunities and networks that you may not have been aware of. Whether you already have a LinkedIn profile or are considering starting one, this workshop is for you!
