      The LinkedIn Flipside: What Hiring Reps REALLY See When Your Clients Apply Online Through LinkedIn

      Presented by Ashley Watkins, NCRW

      Friday, March 15, 2019

      12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m., ET 

      More than 1 million LinkedIn members get hired through a referral every year so it’s no surprise why so many career coaches offer services to guide their clients in using LinkedIn Jobs to harness the power of their networks to get hired.

      However, even with the most influential network, job seekers can unknowingly place themselves at a disadvantage by not optimizing their LinkedIn profiles. As a recruiter with more than 15 years of corporate experience, Ashley will offer an inside peek into what recruiters and hiring managers see once a client applies.

      Knowledge You Will Gain:

      1. Ways to improve your clients’ visibility and chances for consideration when applying for positions on LinkedIn.
      2. The instant turnoffs that lessen your clients’ chances of landing their dream jobs.
      3. What key components of your clients’ LinkedIn profiles need the most optimization to secure interviews and recruiter interaction.
      4. How your clients can position themselves to stand out from other job seekers, who apply with minimum effort while other job seekers only apply with minimum effort.

      Eligible for 1 CEU. This one-hour webinar is $19.99 for NRWA members and $39.99 for nonmembers. It will be recorded and distributed to all participants.
