Linkedin Webinar

Linkedin SmurfsGreat feedback for the first LSE Careers Service / CLT Webinar which focused on using Linkedin

As part of my work with the LSE Careers Service I co-facilitated a Webinar about Linkedin for job-hunting students. It was the first time we had offered a webinar and the first time we had run a session specifically on Linkedin.  The feedback was very positive:

“A really useful talk and a great way to communicate with the careers service. Thank you”

  • 9 out of 12 said they would make more use of Linkedin as a result of attending the webinar
  • All 12 participants want the Careers Service to run more sessions as webinars

The webinar covered 4 topics:

  1. What is Linkedin? Why use it?
  2. Your Profile – Get Noticed
  3. Get Connected
  4. Researching & Getting More Connected

We tried to minimise the chalk-&-talk by building in some interaction: stopping regularly for questions and using the built-in question tools.  It is very easy for the mind (& fingers!) to wander off in a Webinar so you need strategies for dealing with this!
