Boost Your Confidence, Serve Your Clients
Originally Recorded 2/21/14
Writing LinkedIn profiles has become a must-have skill for every resume writer. If you want to serve your clients well--which we all do!--it is essential to understand best practices and potential pitfalls as you approach writing each client’s profile. Some of the topics we’ll cover:
What’s the ONE most important thing to keep in mind when writing a LinkedIn profile?
