Finding, connecting and capitalising. That’s what LinkedIn is all about. It’s hard to imagine our society without social media. It’s quick and easy to create a profile, but how can LinkedIn help you in carrying out your work and enhancing your career? How can you expand and utilise your academic and non-academic professional network both nationally and internationally? How can you profile yourself online? How do you discover relevant contacts? How do you ensure that you use your online contacts to get interviews with employers more easily? How do you ensure that recruiters, employers and colleagues from your field can find you?
Discover the answer to this and other questions in this practical training full of tips and tricks.  This training consists of 2 parts:

  • Part 1: Introduction LinkedIn (if you want to get more out of your profile)
