I was able to put some of it into practice the next day during a phone interview - I had a case story at the ready. I also enjoyed "Calling Cards" and have shared the exercise with two friends. I always find Lynn's input and advice to be so helpful."

Featured Article
"Serendipity Lost, Serendipity Gained? Virtual Work Actually Spurs More Innovation"
One of the big questions encountered this past year was how to keep innovation rolling when people were working entirely virtually. We took up this question on these pages after the Covid-19 crisis hit, scattering employees and executives across a corporate diaspora of home-based workplaces.

Now, two separate studies published in MIT Sloan Management Review suggest that innovation has not been impeded, and may have even boosted, by remote work.

“You might assume that major changes in how we work are taking a large toll on business creativity, in light of the loss of more spontaneous face-to-face connections and interactions,” writes Leigh Thompson, professor at Northwestern University. “Based on research I and others have conducted over the past couple of decades, I believe that the shift to remote work actually has the potential to improve group creativity and ideation, despite diminished in-person communication.”

2. APRIL 14th “MAXIMIZING THE VALUE OF LINKEDIN DURING YOUR JOB SEARCH” - $75.00
There’s no question that LinkedIn is one of the most valuable job search tools available today. But the average job seeker probably uses less than 50% of the potential that LinkedIn can deliver. Your LinkedIn profile can be a tremendous asset to your search if it’s built right. The LinkedIn platform can help you uncover a lot of hard-to-find companies, if you know how to find them. Having a lot of LinkedIn connections can be extremely useful, if you know how to leverage them. And joining a lot of LinkedIn groups can be powerful if you know how to integrate them into your overall job search marketing effort. In short, it takes a comprehensive LinkedIn job search plan in order to exploit the full power of its capabilities. That’s what this workshop will address.    

During this 2.5-hour instructional session, MARTY GILBERT, NSENG founder and job search coach, will walk you through the LinkedIn platform and provide you with his perspectives on the following topics:

Specific goals of an effective LinkedIn profile
Actions you should take in each section of your profile to make your background stand out
How Search Engine Optimization (SEO) plays a huge part in attracting recruiters
What recruiters see in the back-end of LinkedIn when looking for qualified candidates 
How to use LinkedIn criteria-based searches to find more target companies and key influencers 
Example scripts on how to engage your LinkedIn connections for help 
Marketing and social media tactics on how to draw more traffic to your LinkedIn profile 
How you can use an Artificial Intelligence extension to LinkedIn to get background on the people you may be interviewing with before you even meet them

Date: Wednesday, April 14th
Time: 6:00-8:30 PM CST

3. APRIL 15th - WHY WOULD A RECRUITER CALL YOU?

• Importance of your LinkedIn Profile and Groups
• Associations and Publications

The lines will be open to address your questions following the training presentation.
