Join the YES program on Monday, May 17 at 11am ET for the YES LinkedIn Webinar – the latest webinar offering from the YES program. Curious about the best way to connect with someone over LinkedIn that you've never met? Wondering how to make your profile stand out from the millions of others? Interested in learning how to optimize your job search? Then this webinar is for you!
LinkedIn is one of the most powerful tools available to network and connect with experts and professionals around the world. LinkedIn provides a platform to showcase work experience, educational background, recommendations, and awards; make professional connections; and build a personal brand. There are over 740 million members in more than 200 countries, which means not only are users advertising themselves, but they are also creating connections with thousands of people. LinkedIn provides an avenue for members to explore potential career paths, find mentors, and pursue job opportunities. That's why the company calls itself "the world's largest professional network."
According to LinkedIn, 93% of recruiters use LinkedIn to recruit and research candidates, so now is the perfect time for YES students and alumni to rework their LinkedIn profiles! At this webinar, you will learn how to build your brand and polish your profile, connect with the YES community and professionals in your field, and leverage the LinkedIn platform to pursue career opportunities. Who better to learn from than a LinkedIn employee themself? This is why the YES program is excited to introduce the webinar’s guest speaker Tarin Rickett, a Senior UI Engineer on LinkedIn's Growth team, as well as a LinkedIn Coach. Following the webinar, Tarin and her team will be offering one-on-one sessions for YES alumni to receive personal consultation on how to develop a strong LinkedIn profile. In order to be eligible for this opportunity, you must attend the webinar.
