About the Program

LinkedIn is good for a lot more than looking for your next job. It can actually be a fantastic tool to build relationships with donors, and to network with other professionals who can give advice and share resources to help you grow professionally –all of which helps you succeed in your CURRENT job. (So if you’re a manager whose employee wants to sign up for this class, have no fear!)

This workshop will provide you with the background on how to use LinkedIn strategically to build relationships and engage in professional development. You’ll leave with concrete ways to update your profile and ideas on how to get more active on LinkedIn.

Optional - Bring a laptop or cell phone to work on your profile during the event!
