Are you taking advantage of LinkedIn
to advance your career?

 

"Nigel briefed me on the possibilities of using LinkedIn to further my career when in July 2012 I was given notice of redundancy. I can say without doubt that if it hadn't been for his timely and

comprehensive advice, I would not have accessed the forum in which a candid discussion led to an informal meeting, a formal interview and ultimately to the acquisition of a satisfying and lucrative position."

“Nigel is a charismatic speaker who can hold his audience’s attention and deliver with knowledge and relevant practical experience, to give weight to his words. He has recently delivered a series of training sessions and seminars to students at under graduate and post graduate levels, on the use of SNS for career and organisational enhancement. His presentations were a

valuable contribution to Swansea Business School’s “employability agenda”. So much so that we have booked him for a repeat performance in the new academic year and to deliver other internet business topics.”

LinkedIn for Career Advancement

LinkedIn is now a primary resource for recruitment companies, consultants and employers to source professionals, identify potential employees, and get background information on their shortlist candidates.  

Location – where is the course held?

This workshop is delivered at our premises in our dedicated training room at Llandarcy, South Wales, SA10 6JQ, conveniently close to the M4, J43.

Available as a private course, anywhere in the UK or EU.

When you find yourself out of work or about to be made redundant or it can be hard to decide where to start looking for a new position, today LinkedIn has become an essential resource and the first port of call for many.  The way that you build your profile, use the platform and interact with others online can make the journey to a new job much easier.

This LinkedIn essentials course will help you understand how to develop your own online networking strategy and use the functionality of LinkedIn to find a new job quickly.   

Note that this is not another workshop for the technologically inclined or initiated, this is about business, YOUR business and how to get the best return on your investment of resources.   Delivered in a straightforward way, using non-technical language, full of insights and real-world observations, practical techniques and actionable strategies.

Objectives – what you will learn in this workshop

Delegates will understand, gain insights into, or be able to prepare:

  • Setting realistic objectives and understanding the context

  • How companies and recruiters use LinkedIn

  • Planning your job search

  • Developing and managing your profile

  • Recommendations and endorsements

  • Focus on connections - connecting with influencers

  • Searching for contacts, companies and vacancies

  • Efficient use of Groups to your career advantage

  • Planning and building a dialogue for credibility

  • Engendering and facilitating debate

  • Effective use of your feed

  • Online reputation management and keeping on the right side of the law

  • Direct mailing to contacts

  • Using events, slide shows and more to boost your credibility

  • Tracking, results and record keeping; feedback, alerts and analytics

Who should attend?

This workshop is for anyone who:

  • Anyone who is seeking a new position, contracts or career advancement
  • Students or graduates looking for work, whether their first job, the next step or even work experience and internships.

Essential learning for:

  • Directors, managers and other professionals from practically any field,
  • Graduates and those soon to complete university or other professional training.

Prerequisites – what skills or experience should you already possess

It is not assumed that the delegates have any prior knowledge of LinkedIn or online networking, but will have used the internet (for browsing, email, etc.) and be clear on their career path and goals (and even ambitions).

Format – what type of course?

This workshop is delivered as a one-day session. There will be lots of opportunities to discuss, question and share experiences as well as some practical activities. Note that this is not the type of social media training that tells you where to click and type in a box - this is focused on using social media platforms to make connections that will benefit your business.

How many delegates

The number of delegates is up to you, although do recommend keeping the group size to a maximum of 16 delegates to keep the tutor/delegate ratio as high as possible. 

Price – how much (per course - not per delegate to attend a one-day workshop)

£650+vat 

so if you have 6 or 16 people in your team who need the training, the fee is the same.
